Another great way to eat a potato, so easy and quick!

serves 6
prep time 30 Min
cook time 25 Min


  • 3 Tbsp
    olive oil, extra virgin
  • kosher salt
  • 12
    new red potatoes, or any small potato
  • black pepper
  • rosemary, or any herb you like

How To Make

  • 1
    Boil the potatoes in salted water until they're fork tender.
  • 2
    Next, generously drizzle olive oil on a sheet pan.
  • 3
    When the potatoes are tender, place them on the cookie sheet…
  • 4
    Next, grab your potato masher and gently press down on the potato until it slightly mashes…
  • 5
    Next, brush the tops rather generously with olive oil.
  • 6
    Next, grab some Kosher salt. You can use regular salt, but I’d really recommend using kosher. It adheres to the potatoes more easily and really flavors them nicely without getting too salty.
  • 7
    add ground black pepper, and rosemary or chives or whatever...
  • 8
    Now throw them onto the top rack of a very hot (450-degree) oven, and cook them for 20-25 minutes… …Or until they’re golden and crispy and sizzling.
