Crispy Smashed Potato Bites


Easy crispy potato bites made from leftover mashed potatoes, or newly boiled potatoes! These potatoes have a soft center and a crispy outer edge!


  • Mashed Potatoes, or Potatoes boiled and peeled.
  • Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Oil Spray
  • Pepper


  1. Set oven to 410 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl, combine mashed potatoes and add sea salt and red pepper flakes to taste.
  3. Add enough oil to the mixture to hold the potatoes together when they are flattened (should be less than 1 tablespoon).
  4. Scoop out enough potato mixture so that when flattened it will be no larger than 2 inches in diameter and 0.125 inches in height.
  5. You’ll want these at flat as they can be if you want them to be crispy!
  6. Place parchment on a large pan and add the potato rounds.
  7. Lightly spray the top surface of each potato round with oil so that it gets crispy! Sprinkle pepper to taste.
  8. Bake for 45-60 minutes (longer = more crispy!)
  9. What you’re left with is a potato-like-chip with a soft center and crispy outside!


These do not do well in the fridge over night! So eat them up right away! Great with eggs & ketchup for breakfast!
