Yesterday while web-surfing I came across a description of Marlboro Man's Birthday Dinner. Since at the time I was trying to decide what to serve with our Black Bean Burgers for dinner, the idea of Crash Hot Potatoes sounded perfect, so we gave them a try. They were delicious, although they didn't turn out looking as beautiful as Pioneer Woman's did. Go to her site to get the pretty pictures (along with a step-by-step tutorial). Just know that even the "ugly" version tasted scrumptious! Hot Smashed Potatoes
(I couldn't remember the name from the computer room to the kitchen, so we renamed the recipe!)
Salt, pepper, herbs
Boil however many potatoes you desire until fork tender. Drizzle olive oil on a cookie sheet and spread around to coat it. Place the potatoes on the cookie sheet and gently smash with a potato masher. Drizzle with more olive oil and season to taste with kosher salt, freshly ground pepper, and whatever herb you desire. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes until hot and crispy around the edges.
