Foodie Fans of the Pioneer Woman have a wild card, this week. This leaves the playing field open to what we want to make. I always check out potatoes first. I love potatoes in all forms and shapes. This was another dish to have fun with. I love the bashing of food, some hidden desire, in my depths to beat up something. I pick on potatoes.
I find that many of the Pioneer Woman's recipes are easy to make, this one included.
Crash Hot Potatoes
5 whole medium potatoes
1 1/2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Kosher Salt To Taste
Black Pepper To Taste
Garlic powder to taste
Oregano to taste
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in as many potatoes as you wish to make and cook them until they are fork-tender.
On a sheet pan, generously drizzle olive oil. Place tender potatoes on the cookie sheet leaving plenty of room between each potato.
With a potato masher, gently press down 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, fresh ground black pepper and spices.
Bake in a 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
These were as delicious as I expected. Mine got the garlic. Hubby got the oregano.
