Street corn smashed potatoes recipe

This recipe was also inspired by a TikTok video, with the addition of eggs to make it brunch! Serves 2 people.


  • Small potatoes – around 400 grams
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 large can sweetcorn
  • Jalapenos (jarred ones are fine)
  • 2 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 100 ml Sour cream
  • 1 Lime
  • Hot sauce (to taste)
  • Feta
  • Coriander
  • 2 Eggs (optional)


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 220 degrees C
  2. Boil the potatoes whole in salted water for 10-12 minutes until fork tender and drain
  3. Coat the bottom of a baking tray in olive oil, and then use the bottom of a glass or cup to smash the potatoes into the oil
  4. Season with Old Bay and bake in the oven for around 30 minutes or until golden and crispy
  5. Meanwhile, mix the sweetcorn with more Old Bay seasoning and chopped jalapenos (to taste) – gently heat in a frying pan
  6. Make the sauce by whisking together the mayonnaise, sour cream, juice of one lime and a good dollop of hot sauce
  7. Once the potatoes are cooked, make the dish by layering up the potatoes with some of the sauce (drizzle it over) then the corn, then more sauce
  8. Top with crumbled feta (or cotija cheese if you can find it!) and coriander leaves
  9. Fry 2 eggs and plop them on top of your smashed potatoes and street corn for a brunch dish instead of a side dish
