Loaded Smashed New Potatoes

  • Yield 4 servings


4 medium red new potatoes
3 tablespoons white truffle EVOO
1 teaspoon kosher salt, coarse
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 tablespoons sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
4 slices fried bacon, crumbled
4 teaspoons sour cream
4 teaspoons chives


  1. Boil potatoes until just tender, about 15 to 20 minutes depending on size of potato; drain water off.
  2. Heat white truffle oil over a medium heat in a 10-inch or larger frying pan until hot.
  3. With the back of a spatula, press potatoes flat being care to not flatten too much (be careful in handling, you don't want to burn your hands); transfer potato patties to frying pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Fry to a golden brown on both sides (flipping only once). Once you flip, season with salt and pepper again.
  5. Place about a tablespoon of shredded cheese on each smashed potato. Once cheese begins to melt, transfer to serving plate.
  6. If desired, add bacon and a dollop of sour cream; sprinkle with chives. Serve!
