The Pioneer Woman's Crash Hot Potatoes

These potatoes are sooooo incredibly good!  The crazy thing is they are sooooo incredibly EASY!  I got this recipe from the one and only Pioneer Woman and they have proven to be one of my families favorite side dishes!  I like to use the yukon gold potatoes because they are sweet and already have a buttery consistency, but you could use any small sized potato you like.

Crash Hot Potatoes { recipe by The Pioneer Woman }
  • 12 new potatoes {or other small round potatoes}
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • kosher salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • fresh rosemary, or other herbs of your choice, to taste
  Bring a large pot of water to boil.  Add as many potatoes as you'd like to make and cook until fork-tender; about 15-20 minutes.
On a sheet pan, generously drizzle olive oil.  Place potatoes on the cookie sheet leaving plenty of room between each potato.
With a potato masher, gently press down on each potato until it slightly mashes, rotate the potato masher 90 degrees and mash again.  Brush the tops of each crushed potato generously with more olive oil.
Sprinkle potatoes with kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and fresh chopped rosemary.
Bake in a 425 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
serve potatoes with any sort of chicken or beef dish...I served them with this chicken and some delicata squash.
