Crash Hot Potatoes

Or...the most tantalizing potatoes ever! Seriously I can't get enough, they are just so good! I happen to enjoy potatoes in most of their forms whether it be mashed, fried, baked, and so on. However, my one dislike has always been how dry they tend to be.This is the reason that usually I stay away from eating baked. They are just too dry unless you dump loads of sour cream and cheese on top. Thereby using your entire fat allotment for the week in one sitting...not a fan. However, with this recipe I have never had that problem. Now it's your turn to enjoy and see if you agree!

Crash Hot Potatoes
  1. Potatoes - As many as you like and whatever kind you prefer (I've used three different potatoes with this recipe and they all turned out beautifully!)
  2. Olive oil
  3. Salt
  4. Rosemary

Begin by boiling your potatoes with the skins on until they are soft and you can run a fork through them easily.

Spread a thin layer of olive oil on a baking tray and place the potatoes right from the boiling water on it. 

 Then with a fork (or whatever utensil you prefer) push down and break them open.

 Then drizzle a generous amount of olive oil over the top. Don't be afraid of soaking them either. I use a good tablespoon over each potato. Then add a generous amount of salt. I use my fingers and sprinkle it all over each one. Last, sprinkle a light coating of rosemary over the potatoes. This is one thing that I would not overuse, a small amount works well.
 Now, pop them in the oven at 350 degrees for around 30 minutes. The goal is to bake them until the skins and edges are crisp.
Now it's time to dig in! 

Serve with a side of chicken and broccoli and you have a delicious dinner!



  1. I was with you until the broccoli. Tomarrow it's pork roast and little potatoes. The pork roast exists only to make gravy for the potatoes.

    1. Now Babba, a little broccoli never hurt anyone ;)

  2. I've made these about 5 times since you posted this :)
