Smashed Potatoes

Smashed Potatoes

These potatoes are very similar to the ones served at J. Alexander’s restaurants, which are absolutely delicious! J. Alexander's Smashed Potatoes are probably my favorite restaurant potatoes!
Play around with the ingredients until you find the combination your family likes best! I usually go light on the butter and milk, allowing the potato flavor to come through and the texture to be a bit on the dry side, for mashed potatoes. This makes them taste more like J. Alexander’s potatoes - to me.


Russet Potatoes, 1 large potato per person

Cube unpeeled potatoes into 1 - 1 ½ inch pieces.
Boil potatoes until tender: drain.

Smash with a hand-held potato “smasher,” leaving nice ¼ -inch pieces in the potatoes.

Gently add a combination of these ingredients to taste:
salt
white pepper
freshly chopped or dried parsley
grated Parmesan cheese
butter
half and half and/or milk

  1. These sound great Connie. A delightful change from regular mashed potatoes. I'll have to try them for dinner maybe on Sunday. I hope all is well with you and yours! :)
