I love looking at food blogs and getting inspired to make new things. I was looking at the Pioneer Woman Cooks website the other day and I saw a recipe called “Crash Hot Potatoes”. They were created by an Australian food writer named Jill Dupleix. I love the Pioneer Woman, she has a witty and wonderful website full of great recipes & stories. She also gives you step-by-step photos of the recipe. Check out her website through the link above – you’ll love it. I decided to make these little beauties and my whole family was glad I did. Growing up in Idaho, I had potatoes every way you can imagine…and I love them all. I have never had potatoes like this before so I had to try them. The recipe was very easy to make. They were crunchy and creamy and so delicious. I loved them plain with sea salt, fresh cracked pepper, and a bit of olive oil and I also liked them with a bit of sour cream and green onions. A great new potato recipe to add to my collection.
Crash Hot Potatoes:
- 12-15 baby red potatoes
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
How to Make Crash Hot Potatoes
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Boil the potatoes for 10-15 minutes or until fork-tender. Drain & place the potatoes on a baking sheet that’s coated in cooking spray. Using a potato masher, gently smash each potato.
Drizzle with olive oil, sea salt, and pepper (add a bit of your favorite dry herbs if you like).
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until crisp and golden brown. Eat plain or top with a little sour cream and green onions (my kids loved them this way). Enjoy!
