Crash Hot Potatoes

crash hot potatoes
We were planning on having ham last night, since I had a coupon that expired this week, and I had a vague memory of seeing these potatoes somewhere. It took a little bit of searching, but I should have known something so delicious would be found from The Pioneer Woman Cooks. I L-O-V-E potatoes, especially crispy potatoes and these were awesome! Since you boil them first, you don't have to worry about them not being all the way done and they get deliciously crispy. YUM!

* 12 whole New Potatoes (or Other Small Round Potatoes) (I used red)
* 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
* Kosher Salt To Taste
* Black Pepper To Taste
* Rosemary (or Other Herbs Of Choice) To Taste (I made these last minute, so just used salt and pepper)

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.
