Crash Hot Potatoes

This recipe comes from Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman. This is a great side dish for any main course, but I think this would go well with Spicy Macaroni and Cheese, a recipe that I also made based on a recipe from the Pioneer Woman.

-12 whole New Potatoes (or Other Small Round Potatoes)
-3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
-Kosher Salt To Taste
-Black Pepper To Taste
-Rosemary (or Other Herbs Of Choice) To Taste (I used thyme instead of rosemary)

Boil the potatoes in a large pot of salted water, until they are fork tender.
Spread out on an oiled cookie sheet.
Mash the potatoes flat using a potato masher, I didn't have one so I tried using this pastry cutter.
I ended up just using a fork.
You don't want to obliterate the potato, but rather just flatten it like a cookie.
Smashed potatoes.
Now brush all of the potatoes with oil.
Season liberally 
Add a small amount of herb to each potato.
Bake for 20-25 minutes at 425.

This potatoes were great and were a big hit with J. and my dad. Try these out, you will not be disappointed.
