If you haven’t visited Pioneer Woman’s cooking site then you are missing some treats. My new favorite is Hot Crash Potatoes.Â Easy and sooo good.
Boil new potatoes in salted water – she recommends kosher salt.Â When they are “fork tender” remove and drain.Â On a large cookie sheet, drizzle olive oil.Â Place the potatoes on the cookie sheet and using a glass, push until the potato is flattened to about an inch – not completely smushed but split open.Â Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt, pepper, and whatever herbs you like. Use plenty of salt.Â I used chives and garlic but you could use rosemary or whatever you prefer.
Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes.Â The skin will be nice and crispy and the center soft and delicious!
Okay…I’m a fan. Made these for dinner tonight – they were great!!!
Glad you liked them! Sometimes the simplest things really are the best!
