Crashed Potatoes

I was in the mood to cook a nice Saturday night dinner for DH and I. We had grand plans to relax and watch a movie, but ended up having stuff to do around the house and running errands. Dinner was still good though. We had this with a bbqed steak and Skillet Braised Tomato Green Beans.

olive oil
kosher salt
black pepper
garlic, minced
Italian seasoning


  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until fork-tender.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  3. Line a rimmed cookie-sheet with foil (for easy clean-up). Drizzle a cookie-sheet with olive oil. Put cooked potatoes onto cookie sheet.
  4. Using a potato masher, gently press down on each potato twice until slightly mashed.
  5. Drizzle more olive oil on the potatoes.
  6. Sprinkle potatoes with salt, pepper, minced garlic, and Italian seasonings.
  7. Bake at 450 for 20-25 minutes until nice and crisp. Enjoy!

DH and I really enjoyed these and we will be doing them again. The extra-crispy bits of potato on the pan were really really yummy and a great taste of what was to come.
