Lemon, Rosemary & Parmesan Roasted Smashed Petite Potatoes


  • 1 1/2 pounds red and yellow petite potatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp roughly chopped fresh rosemary (or 1 tsp dried)
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp sliced green onion tops


  • Preheat oven to 450°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  • Put potatoes in a large pot and add water to cover. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Potatoes should be cooked through but still hold their shape. Do not overcook. Drain potatoes and let cool for 10 minutes.
  • Place potatoes on baking sheet and gently press down on each with the palm of your hand until they split open but are still in one piece and are about 1/2-inch thick. Space potatoes 1-inch apart. Brush with oil and flip to coat both sides.
  • Sprinkle potatoes with salt and pepper and cook for 20 minutes. Sprinkle Parmesan, lemon zest and rosemary over potatoes and toss lightly; cook for 10 to 15 minutes more or until potato edges are crispy and brown.
  • Serve warm with Greek yogurt sprinkled with green onion tops.
