Cheesy Smashed Baked Potatoes and Steak

Cheesy Smashed Baked Potatoes

  • Author: Shay Jordan Hrobsky


A simple and delicious Smashed Potatoes Recipe loaded with bits of garlic, cheese, and bacon! Everyone will love this dish!


  • 1 lb. potatoes – I used Gold but Red potatoes work wonderfully too
  • 5 T. unsalted butter (may need a little more depending on how many potatoes), cut into small chunks – I cut my chunks into ½ tablespoon and then I cut the ½ tablespoon in half and put them on each potato
  • 1 cup of mozzarella cheese (or your cheese of preference – we used taco cheese on some and mozzarella on the others)
  • 12 T. garlic powder
  • 3 T. fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Bacon crumbles (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Boil a large pot of salted water and add potatoes. Cook for about 15 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain pot and set potatoes aside to cool.
  3. Once cool enough to handle, place potatoes on the prepared baking sheet and mash with a potato masher until flat. Leave space between potatoes so they are not too close.
  4. Top each potato with butter and a sprinkle of your cheese.
  5. Sprinkle them with garlic powder and parsley.
  6. Place in your preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until potatoes are nicely browned.
  7. Remove from the oven and top with remaining cheese and fresh parsley. Serve immediately.
