Red Skin Mashed Potatoes
Red Skin Smashed Potatoes are my new favorite because they’re crazy easy to make but the flavor is out of this world.
Tender cooked red potatoes are mashed until creamy and smooth are stirred with melted browned butter before being seasoned with Everything Bagel Spice.
Just three ingredients and you have one easy side dish that’s going to be a hit with everyone that takes a bite.
Ingredients You Will Need
You only need three ingredients to make these Everything Spiced Red Skin Mashed Potatoes.
Baby Red Potatoes – I like to use the baby potatoes because they cook up quickly and you don’t need to chop. You can use the large red skinned potatoes but be sure to cut them into uniform chunks before cooking so they cook evenly.
Butter – Salted butter….you need the salty solids to create the brown butter, also known as beurre noisette. Brown butter is made by cooking butter long enough to turn the milk solids brown while cooking out any water in the butter. It tastes nutty, warm and has much more flavor than just regular melted butter.
Everything Bagel Seasoning – The most epic (and trendy) spice blend, it has kosher salt, garlic, onion, poppyseeds and sesame seeds so you don’t need much else to season your potatoes. We like to use our homemade Everything Bagel Seasoning. Make a big batch…put it on everything. Literally.
How To Make Them
Homemade Mashed Red Potatoes are super simple to make.
Here’s how to do it:
Add the potatoes to a large pot and fill with water just to cover.
Season with salt.
Bring the potatoes to a boil and cook until fork tender, approximately 20-30 minutes.
Brown the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Set aside.
Drain the potatoes and return to the pot.
Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or fork.
Pour the butter over the potatoes and add the Everything Bagel Seasoning.
Stir to combine.
