Garlic Parsley Smashed Small New Potatoes Recipe – simple recipe, perfect for football season and the upcoming holidays.Garlic-Parsley-Smashed-Small-New-Potatoes-Recipe

I’ve been eating a lot of potatoes lately… I love potatoes, but I also love eggs. Why eggs? I don’t even know why I’m sharing this, but since my baby is allergic to dairy, I also realized he is sensitive to eggs, so I decided to avoid them for a while. That’s why I’ve been eating even more potatoes than before and these Garlic Parsley Smashed Small New Potatoes are my new favorite.

These smashed potatoes are so good! They are made with coconut oil and have rich garlic-parsley flavor. Drizzled with some lemon juice for extra freshness.


If you are looking for quick and easy game day or holiday appetizer, you have found it.

These potatoes make the perfect side dish, but the fact that they are bite sized, turns them into a great party food.

Oven baked and as I said made with coconut oil.

I use a lot of coconut oil in my cooking.

Feel free to substitute with equal amount of butter, if you are not a fan of coconut oil.

Of course the taste will be different.

When made with coconut oil, these garlic parsley smashed new potatoes are light and flavorful.

When made with butter, these potatoes are rich and buttery.

If you like potatoes, this recipe is a must try!
