PW Crash Hot Potatoes

 One of my favorite side items to make for dinner are Pioneer Women's Crash Hot Potatoes!  They are SO good and irresistible!  Good with everything from burgers to roast to grilled chicken.

12 whole new potatoes (or other small round potatoes)
Kosher Salt
3 Tablespoond Olive Oil
Black Pepper to taste
Minced Rosemart (or other herb of choice) to taste

1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, boil the potatoes in lightly salted water until fork-tender, about 20 minutes, or until fork tender.

2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

3. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet. Using a potato masher, gently press down to mash each one.  Rotate the masher 90 degrees, then mash again.

4. Drizzle the tops of the potatoes with the olive oil.

5. Sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, and rosemary.

6.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. These are absolutely irresistible!

- Variations - place a pat of butter on top of each smashed potato before baking
Top each smashed potato with grated cheddar before baking.
