Sherry Peyton


Easy and tasty addition to the ever seeking "new way to fix taters." Take out your aggression on the lowly potato. Can be finished off either under the broiler or in a saute pan. If you like this recipe see my site: mybestcookbook.wordpress.com

new potatoes (smallish)
1 Tbsp
canola oil
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil


1Wash your potatoes and place in a plastic bag. Drizzle with the canola oil and massage until potatoes are coated with oil.
2Place on a parchment covered jelly roll pan and roast at 425 for about 40 minutes or until done.
3Remove pan from oven. Slide all the potatoes to one side except one. Using a small saucepan, press down until potato "smashes." Do this for all, keeping them apart.
4Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Return to oven now set on broil. Broil until browning on top and looking crispy around the edges. Serve!
5NOTE: you can remove to a saute pan and brown and crisp that way if you prefer. Just add a little olive oil to the pan and season the potatoes the same way, turning once.
