Malt Vinegar Smashed Potatoes, baby yukon gold potatoes, boiled, smashed then baked until crispy and coated in malt vinegar. A crispy, creamy, tangy, yummy side dish!
It’s sides week for the Thanksgiving series, yay! (Sorry I missed last week, you know that isn’t normal for me… I’ll do better, I promise!) Today I have these gorgeous smashed potatoes so share that are brushed with malt vinegar. I know, sounds a little weird, right? But, trust me, WOAH. So yum. We made these at my parents house with my Dad and we all went nuts over them!
The vinegar mixes with olive oil that is used to bake these until crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. It’s like it makes it’s own yummy vinaigrette!
- 24 oz (1 bag) baby gold potatoes
- ¾ Cup salt
- 8 Cups water
- 6 Tbls olive oil
- ⅛ Cup malt vinegar
- pepper to taste
- Rinse off potatoes and put into a large stock pot with the water and salt. Boil until fork tender 30-45 minutes.
- Take out of water and onto a wired rack to cool for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Place potatoes onto sheet tray and with the bottom of a glass, smash them until about ½ inch or the thickness of your index finger. Drizzle with the olive oil and brush on the malt vinegar. You do not have to use all of the vinegar, just enough to brush some on each potato.
- Bake for 15 minutes on the first side, flip and bake an additional 15 minutes until golden brown and crispy. If desired, for extra tangy-ness, brush again with the remaining malt vinegar before serving. Enjoy!
