One Pan Potato Smash Smoosh

Smash smoosh

I was making a favorite side dish of ours one evening, Collard Greens with veggie bacon and garlic, when it came to me that smashing in a potato would create a great one pan, complete meal. It also holds true to a culinary philosophy of mine: “Meat can be used as a flavoring, or accent, but doesn’t have to overpowering the meal”.


  • 2 potatoes, cooked in a microwave (large take 5-6 minutes) still hot
  • 1 bunch collard greens chopped, stems removed
  • 3 veggie bacon chopped into 1/2 inch squares
  • earth balance butter
  • a little red wine (optional)
  • salt pepper and toasted garlic
  • sunflower oil

On medium heat, saute the bacon bits until the bits gets crispy around the edges
add collard greens, butter, garlic, salt and pepper, saute together until the collard greens go soft.
chop the potatoes, course chop the potatoes and add them to the mix. Add more butter on top of the potatoes, and smash the potatoes and butter into the mix.
