So, you want to cook up some smashed potatoes, huh? Well, buckle up, because we're about to take this recipe to a whole new level of deliciousness!

What's the Deal with Smashed Potatoes?

First things first, let's talk about what smashed potatoes actually are. They're like the rebellious cousin of mashed potatoes - a little rough around the edges, but oh so tasty. Think of them as the rockstars of the potato world.

Ingredients: What You'll Need

Alright, gather 'round, folks! You're gonna need some spuds (obviously), olive oil, and some chives (because we fancy). Oh, and don't forget the salt and pepper - they're the real MVPs here.

Instructions: Let's Get Smashing!

Step 1: Light your firepit using our Flaming Firewood or Grill & Chill and KindleFlamers. If your firepit has a swing arm, swing this around to allow it time to heat up

Step 2: Boil those potatoes until they're nice and tender. Think of it as a spa day for your spuds.

Step 3: Whilst waiting for the potatoes to boil, chop up the chives and mix with some extra virgin olive oil. Once the potatoes have boiled, transfer them onto a fire proof skillet. Then smash 'em up real good, using a cup to press down the potoes. After, brush them over generously with the oils and chives.

Step 4: Place the skillet over the fire and fry each side for a couple of minutes minutes (or until golden brown - this will vary depending on the heat of your fire). . It's about to smell amazing, just saying.

Step 5: Once both sides are browned, remove from the heat. We paired ours with spicy mayo, but the choice of the dip is entirely yours. It's like a flavor explosion in your mouth!
