I used this recipe, well sort of, to use up some leftover boiled potatoes. I cut the potatoes and placed them on a baking sheet, then crushed them with my potato masher and sprinkled olive oil mixed with thyme, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper over top. Baked as directed, served with chopped green onions and sour cream. Delicious!!
