For me, they’re superior to baked potatoes. And, I can do the same thing with smashed potatoes that I do with baked potatoes. Add sour cream, bacon crumbles, grated cheese, and whatever toppings make me happy! 

Salt and Vinegar Gold Potatoes

For this recipe, I really urge  you to use the Yukon gold type of potato. It works best for the recipe. That’s the gospel!

When you cook them, they have this fabulous creamy and tender consistency with a rich, buttery, and earthy flavor.

Who doesn’t love fish n’ chips! And, those splashes of vinegar with the fish and potatoes! Well, it’s just a fabulous flavor profile.

Vinegar Roasted Potatoes

Now another option with these potatoes is to finish them off with a mixture of vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. 

Drizzle it on the crispy golden brown roasted potatoes, and you’ll have a somewhat more intense flavor of the vinegar. 

If you want to try, do one-fourth cup of olive oil and twp tablespoons of white distilled vinegar. Whisk together well. Drizzle on the potatoes. Then sprinkle with those glorious sea salt flakes! OR, leave this olive oil/vinegar mixture as a drizzle that you can use when the potatoes are served. Options are important!

Easy Salt Vinegar Smashed Potatoes

Yield: 4-6 servings


  • 6-7 large Yukon potatoes, about 1.5 lbs., washed, rinsed, dried, and sliced lengthwise in halves
  • 1 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 2 ½ tsp. sea salt, divided
  • 1 tsp. coarse ground pepper, divided
  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced thinly, French cut
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • ¼ cup fresh dill, chopped
  • Sea salt flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. In a large stock pot, put enough water to cover the potatoes by about 2”. Add the vinegar and 1 teaspoon of salt. Add the potatoes. Cover the pot.
  3. Put on a high heat blaze. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmering boil. Cook for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the potatoes can be easily pierced with a wooden skewer (about 8” skewer to test for doneness).
  4. While the potatoes are cooking, put a piece of parchment paper in about an 8 x 12” casserole dish (about 2.5 to 3” deep with a lid). Add the sweet onions on the bottom and drizzle on 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle with one-half teaspoon of salt and pepper (1/2 teaspoon). Set aside.
  5. When the potatoes are ready, remove from the water (discard). Put the potatoes on paper towels and pat some of the excess water off. Take a potato masher and smash each potato on the fleshy side (not skin side). Place in the casserole dish atop the onions.
  6. Sprinkle with the remaining sea salt and pepper. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil. Cover and roast in a 400-degree preheated oven for 20 to 22 minutes. Remove the lid. Turn to broil (dish should be at least 10-12” from broiler.) Drizzle a little more olive oil on the potatoes.
  7. Brown the potatoes for about 10 minutes or until there’s a golden brown on the top ones. Remove from the oven.
  8. Sprinkle with the fresh dill.
  9. Finish with sea salt flakes (optional).


Make an olive oil/vinegar 'vinaigrette' to serve with the potatoes. If someone wants more of this flavor, then drizzle on!

  1. 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  2. 2 Tbl. vinegar
  3. 1 tsp. fresh dill
  4. Whisk together well.
