Honey Roasted Smashed Potatoes are the best potato side dish. Ever. The sauce is seriously so good, you can’t stop yourself from licking the pan!

Smashed Potatoes on a baking sheet sitting in a thin layer of oil and honey.

This is one of those easy side dishes that will have you scraping the baking pan just to get all of that extra goodness off. Small potatoes are roasted, smashed, and then drowned in a honey, butter filled pool of flavor. It’s so easy to make. Aren’t those always the best side dishes?

We absolutely love these potatoes. They are neutral enough that they can be served with a variety of main dishes, and tasty enough that the serving plate will be licked clean. These babies are even good as leftovers. Make sure you serve them up with all that delicious butter that leaks out onto the pan. It is absolutely heavenly!

  • What main dishes pair well with smashed potatoes?

    We love this side dish with a hearty pot roast, roasted chicken or a pork tenderloin. Really though, smashed potatoes are so darn delicious, they can go on the side of just about anything. 

  • Can I use different types of mustard?

    Not everyone loves the intense mustard flavor from Dijon. You can always substitute with classic yellow mustard or spicy brown mustard, though we do love the complexity of flavor Dijon brings to this recipe.

  • What is the best way to reheat leftovers?

    The ideal way to reheat smashed potatoes is in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until heated through. You really do want to maintain that crispiness. However, we’ve been known to simply throw one in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute. They are so darn good, sometimes we just can’t wait for the oven!

Honey roasted smashed potatoes on sheet pan
Honey Roasted Smashed Potatoes are the best potato side dish. Ever. The sauce is seriously so good, you can’t stop yourself from licking the pan!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
  • 15 small baby red potatoes
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  • Clean the potatoes and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until potatoes can be smashed with a fork. Actual baking time will depend on the size of the potatoes. Larger potatoes take longer.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together melted butter with honey, dijon mustard, salt, and oregano.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven. Use a fork to smash each potato, as pictured. Pour the butter mixture over the potatoes. Return to the oven and bake 5 to 10 minutes more, giving it a little time to melt and slightly caramelize into the potato.
  • Serve hot with juices.

Made these one night for my fiancé… now he keeps asking me when I’m going to make them again. And he usually doesn’t like honey or dijon mustard but boy oh boy did he scarf up these potatoes!

Oh my goodness, these were delicious!! I chose potatoes too big so they didn’t look pretty when “smashed”. The taste however was divine! I will definitely be making these again!

So delicious. “Best of the quarantine” says my husband. I used a sweeter mustard and should have cut back on the honey.

Hi Rachel, I love your recipes and this one really caught my eye as perfect for a family gathering next week. I hoped to cook the potatoes and smash them earlier in the day to make my life easier, and then drizzle over the flovourings and bake again prior to serving. have you don’t this and was it successful? I will also have to leave out the honey also, so fingers crossed with that too!
thanks Shirley M
