Smashed potatoes are a really nice way to enjoy potatoes! You roast small potatoes,
smash them down so that they are relatively flat and then roast them some more until the now exposed potato gets nice and crispy on the outside while remaining soft and tender on the inside. You can also cook sweet potatoes like this where you take the sweet potato and slice it into 1 inch thick discs, roast and then smash them just like regular potatoes. Because sweet potatoes are sweet you have some options with them including both sweet and savoury and one of my favourites are these parmesan garlic miso butter smashed sweet potatoes. Butter and miso paste are a magical combination that I enjoy using quite often and when you add garlic and parmesan things just get better, especially when you place it on roasted sweet potatoes to melt into them! Once the sweet potatoes are until tender, they are smashed and topped with the garlic miso butter and then a ton of parmesan cheese is sprinkled on top before being returned to the oven until the cheese has melted. These parmesan garlic miso butter smashed sweet potatoes are the perfect combination of sweet and savoury and they make an excellent side for any meal, especially a holiday dinner!
