Crispy Salt & Vinegar Potato Smashies
Crispy, golden and fluffy, these potato smashies are the ultimate smashed potato experience! Quick and tasty, they are ideal as appetisers or snacks. Dress them up or down, just like your favourite little black dress
Potatoes – are they not the most delicious little things? These fluffy, crispy potato smashies are my new favourite way to snack on potatoes. As simple as can be to make, they are the ultimate moreish and yummy snack.
Easy to dress up or down, smashies or smashed potatoes, are just delicious. Baked to perfect crispiness in the air fryer, the texture of these little potato bites is incredible.
Serve topped with sour cream and red onion pickles for a fancy canape, or enjoy sprinkled liberally with salt and soaked in piquant malt vinegar. These are also amazing served alongside a fresh garlic aioli. We made our own mayonnaise for this recipe, but you can simply grate fresh garlic into your favourite mayo.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make this in the oven instead of the air fryer?
To oven-bake this dish, simply par-boil the potatoes in salted water for 20 minutes, then drizzle with olive oil and bake on a lined baking tray at 220 degrees C until fluffy and crispy.
