Description

Crash Hot Potatoes are a lovely twist on the tired old baked potato! They’re the perfect combination of crispy, flavorful, and simple.

Ingredients

  • 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
  • Parmesan, Finely Grated

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

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.

Drizzle a sheet pan with olive oil. Place tender potatoes on the sheet pan, leaving plenty of room between each potato.

With a potato masher, gently press down each potato until it slightly mashes, then push the excess out of the masher back on top of the potatoes. Rotate the potato masher 90 degrees and mash again, pushing out the excess. Drizzle 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.) Add grated Parmesan.

Bake in a 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and sizzling.

Great recipe! So easy and versatile…Made this twice and the second time I sprinkled a little sharp cheddar on some of the potatoes and grated locatelli on the others for the last five minutes, WOW!

Made these for the first time tonight, though I had been planning to for a long time. Loved them!!!! If I didn’t normally try to avoid carbs, I would eat them every day!!!!! So good!

I knew these would be good! And they were–any kind of potatoes are about my husband’s favorite–he’s a farm boy, and meat and potatoes are what his meals are all about.

i was on vacation in Cape May, NJ last week, and I was trying to think of a different way to serve potatoes with grilled steak. Then I remembered reading this recipe, and I promptly looked it up on my iPhone (that thing is amazing). Anyway, while everybody was showering & changing after coming in off the beach I whipped these up. I thought that I made too many, but once dinner came they disappeared. Quickly. They were a HIT! They wee so popular that I made them for the family again on Labor Day. What a great recipe!

These were great! It took about 20-25 minutes for the potatoes to boil. I mixed minced garlic with the olive oil that I spread on top and sprinkled on some cheddar cheese for the last 5 minutes. Yum!

Our favorite way to eat potatoes now. They go with everything.
Keep ‘em plain-ish or load ‘em up with herbs and/or spices and/or cheese.

Made these for dinner the other night, and they were a delicious alternative to classic roasted red potatoes.
