Perfect Smashed Potatoes For Your Steak Dinner

This is a super alternative to the usual fries, mashed or twice baked potato to accompany that wonderful steak dinner you were planning. Yes, believed it or not Spring is around the corner and the warmer, sunny weather will be here.

  • 2 lbs. baby potatoes (all colours)
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Montreal Steak spice for sprinkling
  • 2-3 tablespoons melted butter

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Boil the potatoes for about 8 minutes (until fork tender). Drain and let cool slightly.

Brush a rimmed cookie sheet with 1 tbsp. oil. Lightly crush the potatoes with the palm of your hand. No smaller than 1/2 inch. Sprinkle with the Montreal Steak Spice (lightly). Brush with half the melted butter and roast until golden and crisp (about 15-20 minutes). Rotate the pan and brush again with the remaining butter.

Serve with your favourite steak. The steak spice ties in perfectly on the potatoes. Add a crisp salad and a glass of whatever tickles your fancy. I prefer a nice Pinot Noir or even a Merlot.
