Description

Created by Australian food writer Jill Dupleix, 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

Preparation

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.

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!

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

Better than expected! At first it just seemed like another way to try potatoes – but they are now my favorite way. Dried or fresh rosemary, both worked fine. We also have more success with the tops getting crunchy if they are in the top shelf or if you turn on the broil feature toward the end of cooking. In-laws really liked them, and called to ask for the recipe the very next morning, they wanted to make some more to have for breakfast.

I love these- sometimes I’ll cover the whole mess in Boursin cheese for the last few minutes under the broiler. DELICIOUS!
