A great dish for every occasion.
Preparing a dish of Cuban crushed potatoes is a wise choice if you are either vegetarian yourself, or think you may have some vegetarians among your dinner guests. They’re fairly simple to prepare.
In a medium saucepan, cover potatoes with water. Salt lightly and bring to a simmer. Cook until just tender, 10 - 15 minutes. Drain. Preheat the broiler.
Spray a baking sheet lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Place 1 potato on a clean kitchen towel and fold towel over the potato. Press down on the potato firmly with the palm of your hand, crushing the potato lightly. Place the potato on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining potatoes.
Brush the tops of the potatoes with oil. Broil until the tops are brown and crusty, 5-8 minutes. Sprinkle with onions, parsley, salt and pepper before serving.
