How cute! They're like mini hasselback potatoes, which I've been wanting to try. I bet they're soft, fluffy, crispy and spicy. Yum!

It looks like you cut them, not mashed the spuds???
I used a masher. I pressed the potatoes but not all the way down, so it still remain a whole piece.

I'm making these right now. My only issue so far is that my masher wouldn't mash the potatoes. One of them went flying across the kitchen! I ended up just cutting into them a little bit.
I used a iron masher, not a plastic one so it is stronger, and very small potatoes. You need to be very gentle with them otherwise they will fly :). Hope you will succeed next time.

Ok - I love roasted potatoes and this looked too good to pass up! I made them just last night. Luckily I do have a iron masher, so I had no problem making the potatoes....The tip about being gentle is key because I smashed two of them, well, let's just say a little too much! I backed off and then it went much smoother. OMG! These were just wonderful - I think I could make these a whole meal, but I had to share with my family! LOL

How much Hungarian paprika and ground garlic (is this garlic powder or minced garlic) is used? The recipe doesn't mention this.

I've used garlic powder but minced garlic would work as well. I didn't mention how much because I wanted to let people to use these ingredients after their  own taste, less or more the potatoes will still be good. But you can try with 1/2 tsp of paprika and 1/2 tsp of garlic powder see how this works for you.

This looks yummy. But, I don't understand how one serving can have 13.7 grams of total fat. The only ingredient in this recipe with any real fat content is the olve oil. Could the information you posted by incorrect?

I used 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil for 4 servings, and as shown here one serving has 13.7 g of fat but only 1.9 g is Saturated fat.  Does it seems too much? You can use less oil it will work as well if you want less fat.

Is a serving one potato?

No, about  2-4 potatoes per serving- depending on the size.

If you want more of kick, add some Slap ya Mama or Zaterains spice to the water. Just add about a teaspoon to tablespoon to get the extra flavor.

Going to wrap in Alum foil and cook on grill. Should turn out good.

Yes, definitely, will cook good, probably a little different taste but good.

Sorry, how did you scrub the potatoes? What if you do not have a masher? Also, do these go well with sour cream? :)

I scrub the potatoes with a new and clean dish sponge.. If you do not have a masher you can simply crush them using a bowl or something.. and yes.. they would work well with sour cream: why wouldn't they?
