  • 2 1/2 pounds baby red potatoes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup Boar's Head Sweet Vidalia Onions in Sauce
  • 1/3 cup Boar's Head Deli Dressing
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • Garnish:
  • green onions


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Clean potatoes before use.
  • Fill a large saucepan with water and a dash of salt, add potatoes and cook over medium heat until the potatoes are fork tender.
  • Remove from heat, drain and rinse potatoes. Place on a parchment lined rimmed cookie sheet. Use a flat bottomed glass to press down on each potato to "smash" or flatten them.
  • Drizzle olive oil over top of each potato.
  • Place the pan in the oven for about 5 to 8 minutes. You want the potatoes to just begin to turn golden around the edges. Remove pan from oven carefully.
  • Flip each potato over with a spatula.
  • In a small bowl combine the Boar's Head Sweet Vidalia Onions in Sauce and Boar's Head Deli Dressing. Mix with a spoon or tiny whisk until smooth. Using a spoon drizzle a little of the mixture over each potato.
  • Then sprinkle each potato with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Place a tiny mound of mozzarella cheese over each potato.
  • Place back in 400 degree F oven and cook for 5 to 8 minutes, depending on how you like your cheese. Remove from oven and transfer to a serving platter.
  • Serve with Boar's Head Sweet Slice Ham and a big old potato loving smile!
