Crash Hot New Potatoes

I don't make mashed potatoes too often, and regular baked potatoes can get a little boring, so here is a new potato recipe. 

These are an acceptable substitute for mashed potatoes, and they are so much easier to make. New potatoes are flavorful and the smashed version is such a great and delicious idea. 

First, start off by boiling the new potatoes in a pot of salted water until they are able to be pierced with a fork.

Place on a baking sheet,

and smash.

Top with a little butter and salt and pepper.

Falafel and potatoes is a great idea as well!

Crash Hot New Potatoes
makes about 16 crash new potatoes

24 oz. new potatoes
salt and pepper

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook 20 minutes, or until soft enough to be able to be pierced with a fork. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet. Smash one potato with a potato masher, rotate the masher 90 degrees, and smash again. Repeat with the rest of the potatoes.
Top each smashed potato with a small amount of butter and salt and pepper.

    I like the idea of the falafel, salad and the potatoes. I call them broken potatoes (papas rotas in spanish). Yummy!

  4. Broken potatoes is an awesome name!

  5. Easier than mashed potatoes? Count me in! I love anything potato, this sounds delicious!

  6. These smashed potatoes look amazing. They're like the perfect blend of mashed and baked potatoes.
