Description

There are oh so many yummy variations of these.

Ingredients

  • 12 whole New Potatoes (or Other Small Round Potatoes)
  • Kosher Salt To Taste
  • Black Pepper To Taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Ranch Dressing Mix Powder
  • Olive Oil Spray
  • Butter, Chopped Chives And Sour Cream, For Topping

Preparation

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, boil the potatoes in lightly salted water about 20 minutes, or until fork tender. When they are done pour them in a colander to drain off the water.

Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Place the potatoes on a lightly greased baking sheet. Using a potato masher, gently press down to mash each one. Tip: To avoid the little buggers from escaping from under the masher, cut an “x” in the center of the potato about half way through before you mash it.

Mist the tops of the potatoes with the olive oil. Sprinkle generously with salt, pepper and ranch powder.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. When done remove baking sheet from the oven and dot the top of each potato with some butter. Garnish with sour cream and chives.
