New Potatoes, Crushed and Roasted are first boiled and then crushed before roasting in the oven. They are like mashed potatoes with crispy edges. Easy to make and everyone can top the way they like. A great versatile side to almost any dish.
While driving to Pinehurst this weekend, I asked Natalie to help me come up with something to have with the Chicken and Sundried Tomatoes that I was going to make for dinner. She whipped out her phone and went to The Pioneer Woman’s website to see what she could find.
I’ve never made any of her recipes that failed. She chose a crushed and roasted new potato recipe. I love roasted potatoes so I was sure these would be wonderful.
The recipe takes a little more time as you boil the potatoes first. (You can also cook them first in the microwave) We had pretty large potatoes so it took a while. Once they are tender, you crush them and drizzle with olive oil and roast until nice and crispy. These are a little easier if you use smaller potatoes. We tried them plain and with a little cheddar and liked them both ways. Add a little rosemary to make them even better. We loved how crunchy they were. Boiling the potatoes first, allows them to get extra crispy in the oven.
How to make crispy crushed and roasted new potatoes
Step 1: Boil the new potatoes until fork tender.
Step 2: Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
Step 3: Use a potato masher or the bottom of a mug to gently mash the potatoes. Drizzle with more olive oil, salt, pepper and rosemary and bake for 20 minutes until crispy. Remove from the oven and add cheese.
