Crash Hot Potatoes

Posted on: February 6, 2010

This is a very simple, but delicious side dish that overshadowed the roasted chicken we were also eating. The skin of the potato crisps up giving a nice contrast to the potato itself. You can also add your choice of herb before you bake it, but we enjoyed them with just salt and pepper.

small round potatoes (or larger potatoes quartered)
olive oil
black pepper

Put potatoes in a pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are fork-tender.

On a sheet pan, generously drizzle olive oil. Place potatoes on the cookie sheet leaving plenty of room between each potato.

With a potato masher, or bottom of a glass, press down each potato to slightly mash it. Repeat a second time, if needed.

Drizzle the tops of the potatoes generously with more olive oil. Sprinkle potatoes with salt and fresh ground black pepper.

Bake in a 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
