Crash Hot Potatoes

I found the recipe for Crash Hot Potatoes on the internet, but I have no idea who created it. This recipe is so easy to make, and one that the kids might like to help with, especially when it comes to using a potato masher to mash down the spuds on the sheet pan. And they are SO good!! I love potatoes, but there is something about potatoes that are somewhat crispy on the outside and soft inside, and bursting with flavor! Who cares about carbs; these are delicious!

So, the first thing you need to do is boil the little potatoes until they are just tender. Poke them with a fork or sharp knife in the middle to tell. Drain and set aside.

While the potatoes are cooking, you can grate the Parmesan or Asiago cheese and gather together the olive oil, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and fresh or dried herbs of your choice. I chose rosemary, which is wonderful on potatoes.

When the potatoes are ready, place on a greased sheet pan and smash down halfway with a potato masher, going one way once and the other way once, much like how you criss-cross peanut butter cookies with a fork.

Drizzle with the olive oil. Sprinkle on the salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Sprinkle on the herbs you have chosen.

Sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese or Asiago. I used Asiago on these, but when I make this recipe in the future, I am going to use both, and more. I love cheese! ;)

Bake for 20 minutes at 425°. They should be lightly browned on the edges and top, and the cheese nicely melted. Serve with sour cream if desired. Enjoy! ~TMMF
