Grilled Smashed Potatoes With Feta

Grilled Smashed Potatoes With Feta

  • Yield: 4 to 6


  • 1/2 cup olive oil, plus more for serving
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 pounds baby Red Bliss potatoes (no larger than 2 inches each), scrubbed well
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground coarse black pepper
  • 3 ounces Greek or Bulgarian feta cheese, crumbled


  • Stir olive oil, garlic, rosemary, and oregano together in a small bowl and let sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes for the flavors to infuse.

  • Preheat a grill to medium high.

  • Place potatoes in a pot of salted water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until potatoes are tender when pierced with the tip of a knife, about 12 minutes. Drain potatoes, discarding water.

  • Using a towel wrapped around the palm of your hand, gently smash each potato until the skin breaks, while trying to keep the potato whole (leaving it about 1 inch thick). Transfer potatoes to a baking sheet. Generously brush both sides of potatoes with olive oil mixture and season both sides with salt and pepper.

  • Place potatoes on grill and cook until grill marks appear and potatoes are nicely caramelized, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a serving platter and crumble feta over the top. Serve hot or warm, drizzled with a bit of olive oil.
