Crash Hot Potatoes

Ok everybody, the recipe we are trying this week is Crash Hot Potatoes. We found this on the Pioneer Woman website. They look amazing! If you want to see pictures before we post go to her website they will make your mouth water. Here is the recipe hope you join us as we savor every bite! We cook the recipe Thursday nights and will post Thursday night or Friday.

Crash Hot Potatoes

12 whole New Potatoes (or Other Small Round Potatoes)
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Kosher Salt To Taste
Black Pepper To Taste
Rosemary (or Other Herbs Of Choice) To Taste

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 generously 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.

  1. I thought these were good. My potatoes were a little big. I should have cut them in half so they didn't cook as well, or smash as well as I would have liked. I tried some with Rosemary and some with Thyme. Tally liked the ones with Rosemary better. Colsten really liked them. He kept asking for more. I think I would make them again and use smaller potatoes or just giving them more time to cook.
