Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper and toss well to coat so all potatoes get seasoned.
Place mini creamer potatoes onto prepared baking sheet and smash with the bottom of a drinking glass until potatoes are about 3/8" thick. Try your best to keep potatoes even with one another so some do not over or under cook.
Bake potatoes in oven for 6 minutes and flip over and bake for another 6 minutes so both sides get crispy and roasted.
Remove mini potatoes from oven and sprinkle with parsley and melted butter before serving.
