Crash Potatoes

Crash Potatoes (A Seat at the Table)

These crash potatoes were also part of my Valentine’s day meal.  I saw these potatoes from the Pioneer Woman ages ago and obviously knew they’d be great (because I’m pretty sure everything the Pioneer Woman makes is great).  And I was not disappointed.  These potatoes are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside and the perfect side dish!  I used dried rosemary this time, but these would be great with a variety of herbs.

Serves 4

Adapted from Pioneer Woman

  • 12 small new potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • crushed dried rosemary (or other herb), to taste

Bring salted water to a boil and boil potatoes until fork tender.  Preheat the oven to 450°F.  Remove potatoes to a lightly oiled baking sheet.  Using a heavy flat-bottomed cup, carefully squish the potatoes.  Using a pastry brush lightly brush the potatoes with olive oil and then sprinkle with salt, pepper and rosemary.  Bake for about 20-25 minutes, until golden and crispy.

  1. Lauren, what an interesting-looking way to (easily) fix potatoes! For a week I have been using the 21-day Tummy Diet by the editor of Readers’ Digest. She had a lot of digestive problems and researched with dietitians, etc and came up with a book on recognizing “Belly Bullies” and Belly Buddies.” It is lots of fun recipes, the last one I made was Stuffed Eggplant. I used the Veg. crumbles in place of beef, and it used Quinoa, grapes, etc the stuffing. Potatoes are considered a “Belly Buddy” so I’ll try this recipe soon. Love, grammy
