These are tasty and easy. I cant remember where I found this recipe, but I think it said to boil the spuds. I nuke them in the microwave instead. Its faster and a lot less messy. Spices can be used to follow a meal theme. Play with the spices, curry, cilantro, cumin etc.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 small potatoes (golf ball size, or smaller)
  • 2 tablespoons oil or 2 tablespoons butter


  1. I like little Yukon Golds (skins on).
  2. Wash the potatoes and put them in a bowl and microwave them till done. CAREFUL they get hot!
  3. Take them one at a time and smoosh them till they are about a half an inch thick. I use two small wooden cutting boards for this.
  4. Use a spatula and transfer them into a hot skillet sizzling with a little butter or oil or a combination of both.
  5. Sprinkle with desired spices, salt, pepper, garlic, curry powder -- etc. and brown on both sides.
