Buttery Roasted Crushed Potatoes

"I got this idea from a magazine but tailored the technique and ingredients to my liking. These potatoes turn out buttery, crispy-golden-brown outside and moist inside."

directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Place potatoes in a large pot, and fill pot with enough hot water to cover potatoes.
  • Bring to a boil over high heat. Add salt and boil for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are fork-tender.
  • Once tender, drain water from potatoes. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Place butter in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish and place in oven for 1 minute or until butter is melted. Remove from oven and stir in pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.
  • Using the curved back side of a fork and a cutting board, gently press potatoes to "crush" them. The "crushed" potatoes should break open but not apart too much.
  • Gently dredge both sides of each crushed potato in butter mixture in pan and arrange in one layer.
  • Roast for 15-20 minutes or until crisp and golden brown.

    Didn’t have small potatoes (using up leftovers before shop tomorrow) and only cooking for 2. Used 3 medium sized spuds cut into 1/4s. Boiled with skins on until soft then crushed slightly and tossed in the hot butter, sprinkled with salt and pepper and only had garlic powder. They were fab. I roasted them on 180’c fan for about 30 mins with some small chunks of courgette (zucchini) which I seasoned the same These were equally delicious. Will definitely be doing again!

    Can I make these a day ahead of time and then reheat them?

    Look! My potatoes appear normal. Usually I love a ‘barrel shaped potato product’ with all my heart (tatertots). Just kidding, great recipe and have already made this twice since discovering last week.
