Salt and Vinegar Smashed Potatoes with Miso Ketchup

Salt-and-vinegar smashed potatoes with miso ketchup is the perfect summer side for cookouts, weeknight dinners, or easy entertaining.


  • 2 lbs. new or baby Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1½ cups white wine vinegar
  • 1½ Tbsp. olive or avocado oil
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp. red miso paste
  • 1 tsp. worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. finely chopped chives


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Place potatoes in a large pot. Add vinegar and just enough water to cover potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce to medium-low, and simmer for 15 minutes, until fork-tender. Drain and transfer potatoes to a rimmed baking sheet. Let cool slightly.
  3. Use the bottom of a measuring cup to smash each potato. Brush each side with oil. Season evenly with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Roast potatoes until crispy and golden brown, 30-35 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
  4. Combine ketchup, miso, and worcestershire in a bowl; stir with a whisk.
  5. Place roasted potatoes on a plate or serving platter. Scatter chives over the top. Serve with miso ketchup.
