Diva In The Kitchen: Crash Hot Potatoes

The Pioneer Woman is a true goddess!  This recipe is from her site and has been my all-time favorite potato recipe.  It is just simply divine!  The potatoes get really crunchy and the fresh herbs add a spectacular flavor.  They are super easy too!  MAKE THEM NOW! You will not regret it.

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 (Diva's Note: I always add rosemary and thyme)

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.
