Crash Hot Potatoes

IMG_3283

This magical creation I found while browsing Ree Drummond’s Pioneer Womans website. It was love at first sight. Its a bit of a twist on the fried smashed potatoes that I had made and uses regular sized red potatoes which you bake them rather than frying.

I will most definitely be making these again and again, I mean who wouldn’t? There all crisp, crunchy, and delish!

First thing we do is to bring a large pot of salted water to a boil then add the potatoes.

Allow them to cook until they are tender.

The best way to tell is to pierce them with a fork and when they slide off easily, they are done.

Mince up some fresh rosemary very finely.

Prep a large cookie sheet with olive oil or our handy dandy spray Pam. 😀

Lay out the potatoes giving them plenty of room for squishing purposes.

Using a potato masher smush them gently (so they don’t fall apart) in a X.

Next using a pastry or a grilling brush, generously brush the tops of all the potatoes with olive oil.
