Boil, smash and bake??  Let me tell you peeps why… because you get an INSANELY crispy outside and a super soft and creamy inside!!

You can top your crispy spuds with just about anything.. pesto, flavoured mayo or yogurt… the list is endless.  Today I went for a patatas bravas vibe… with a good kick of chilli in the tomato sauce paired with cool creamy garlicky yogurt… a heavenly match!!  

Believe me… these are so easy and soooooo delish you have to give them a try.
