f you are looking for a different starch or potato dish to serve with your dinner, look no further than the crash hot potatoes! They are different, yet in a good way. They are crispy on top and soft on the bottom. They are loaded with flavor. They are very easy to make! They don’t always look that pretty, but once you have that first bite… you will be hooked!
- 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 ** I didn’t use rosemary, but used garlic powder, adobo, and italian seasoning.
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 any other seasonings you may have on hand or prefer.
Bake in a 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
