crash hot potatoes

i made these fun potatoes last night, and we thought they were great! this recipe is from the pioneer woman. (by the way, if you haven't checked out her blog, you must.) this recipe is both easy, and is almost a mix between baked potatoes and oven fries. you can use any herbs you want on them, too. the original recipe uses rosemary, but i used chives last night because i thought they would go well with the fish we were having. this is just a "throw together" sort of recipe-no exact measurements, and minimal ingredients. but very good, nonetheless! i do not have a potato masher, so i just used a spatula. they weren't as pretty as the pioneer woman's, but they were close enough :)

crash hot potatoes
from the pioneer woman

I N G R E D I E N T S:

new potatoes (or other small round potatoes)
olive oil
kosher salt
black pepper
rosemary (or desired herbs)

D I R E C T I O N S :

bring a pot of salted water to a boil. add in as many potatoes as you wish to make and cook them until they are fork-tender.

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

with a potato masher, gently press down each potato until it slightly mashes, rotate the potato masher 90 degrees and mash again. brush the tops of each crushed potato with more olive oil.

sprinkle potatoes with kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper and fresh chopped rosemary (or chives or thyme or whatever herb you have available.)

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