Salt & Vinegar Potatoes

This recipe popped up via Google auto suggestion, probably because I love chips, and it’s a super pairing for a nice roast or bird. Adjust your amount of potatoes and oil/butter to your serving size and taste.


  • small potatoes

  • splash of oil/butter

  • splash of vinegar

  • dash of salt


  • Start by boiling or steaming your potatoes. When they are approaching fork tender, pull them out and smash each one. Don’t mash them, just crush each potato until it just starts to crack.

  • In a baking pan, add a bit of butter and olive oil (to taste and/or diet) and bake at 400° for a few minutes or until it’s nice and hot. Toss the potatoes in the hot oil.

  • Bake and then broil at 400° until the potatoes are brown and then skins are crisp.

  • Toss in a splash of vinegar (I like plain white, some use apple cider or red wine vinegar) and a pinch of good sea salt.
