Smashed roasted potatoes with tomato and onion

Smashed roasted potatoes with tomato and onion

A new way to cook one of my favourite vegetables: smashed roasted potatoes!!

I love potatoes.

I bake them, steam them, sauté or fry them.

I serve them with meat, fish, onions, peppers or simply on their own.

You can cook them in every possible way and they will be always delicious. 🙂

I saw this recipe a lot of times on the web.

I fell in love with it since the first glance and after a bit I could finally prepare and taste it at home.

For this recipe, you will need to cook potatoes in two different ways, but it’s worth it: these potatoes are more than delicious. 🙂

They are crispy and we really enjoy them for dinner.

My partner, who was a bit sceptical at the beginning, took them three times and asked me to make this recipe again soon.

So, I think I can consider this dish a real success!! 😀

Don’t you think?
