Smashed Potatoes (Low FODMAP)

Smashed Potatoes

These potatoes are first boiled, and then smashed onto a hot cookie sheet, and baked with a smattering of salt, pepper, garlic-infused oil, and Parmesan cheese (omit the cheese for vegan or dairy-free). They are crispy, fluffy comfort food, and they’re low FODMAP to boot! Give yourself a full hour to get them made.

If you’re not eating a low FODMAP diet and don’t happen to have garlic-infused olive oil handy, feel free to use powdered garlic and plain olive oil.

These make a great side for my BBQ Chicken Drumsticks.
