  • Prep Time 10 min
  • Cook Time 35 min


  • 2 lbs. baby potatoes (Yukon Gold), scrubbed

  1. Add potatoes to a large pot and cover with cold water by about 1-inch. Add 1 tablespoon of kosher salt and set over high heat. When it reaches a boil, turn down to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain and let cool slightly.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450˚F. When the potatoes are cool, brush a sheet pan with half of buttery spread of choice and add the potatoes. Smash with the back of a fork, a drinking glass or a potato masher. Season with salt and pepper and brush with remaining buttery spread of choice. Roast for about 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
