One look at these and I was out the door. Couldn't wait to buy the the potatoes to make this dish. Had everything else I needed in the pantry. I did add a little garlic to the potatoes. I must say that this is really good. A nice addition instead of plain potatoes. You surely won't be disappointed.
Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Add in as many potatoes as you wish to make and cook them until they are fork-tender.
On sheet pan, generously drizzle olive oil. Place tender potatoes on cookie sheet leaving plenty of room between each potato. With potato masher, gently press down each potato until slightly mashed. Rotate the potato masher 90 degrees and mash again.
Brush the top of each crushed potato generously with more olive oil. Sprinkle with kosher salt, ground pepper and fresh chives or thyme or whatever herb you have available.
Bake in 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
