2. Smash Potatoes: Drain the potatoes and let them cool slightly, drizzle lightly with olive oil. Place them on a baking sheet and, using the bottom of a glass or a potato masher, gently smash each potato until flattened but still holding together.
3. Season and Bake:  Brush over the smashed potatoes with a mixture of salted butter combined with minced garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.
