Instructions: 

  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot full of water, then bring to a rolling simmer. Continue to cook for about 10-12 minutes until the potatoes are fork tender.
  2. Drain the potatoes, but leave them in the warm pot to steam for another 5 minutes. 
  3. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Drizzle about 1 tablespoon of the olive oil on the parchment paper, then pour the warm potatoes onto the parchment. 
  4. Use the bottom of a glass or a measuring cup to press down on each potato until it smashes but still holds its shape. 
  5. Drizzle the potatoes with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and sprinkle with granulated onion powder, and kosher salt. Roast in the hot oven for 25-30 minutes, flipping the potatoes after 20 minutes.
  6. Make the scallion labne: Place the labne in a medium size bowl, and add the lemon zest, fresh lemon juice, chopped scallions, kosher salt, and black pepper. Mix to combine thoroughly. 
  7. Spoon a few large dollops of the scallion labne onto a large plate. Arrange the warm potatoes on top of the labne. Top the potatoes with Kerrygold Naturally Softer Pure Irish Butter, chopped chives, and flakey sea salt.
