and Crash Potatoes!
These potatoes were crispy and yummy! You can change'em up any way you like. You can just go plain 'ol salt and pepper, you could add chives, rosemary or Parmesan cheese. Maybe just throw on some bacon and Cheddar cheese right at the end....hmmmm....
For more detailed instructions please see the Pioneer Woman. She's got it going on.
- Red potatoes
- Olive oil
- Parmesan or preferred topping
Wash potatoes and remove any obvious hairy spots. Boil in salted water until fork tender. Drain. Drizzle olive oil on cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Gently smash each potato with a potato masher (you may want to have a knife handy to sort of push the potato out of the masher after you mash it...it will make you smile if you do this from the beginning or you can yell at the potatoes and grab a knife after you have smashed a couple!) Brush with olive oil. Sprinkle generously with salt and fresh ground pepper. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until potatoes are crispy.
