This potato recipe has been making the rounds! They’re called Crash Hot Potatoes, and it seems the recipe/cooking method originated in Australia. I found that information on The Pioneer Woman’s blog, and the recipe I’m giving you is the one from her blog. These are delicious and so easy to make. I boiled the potatoes earlier in the day and that helped me out a lot when it came time to put dinner together. Make extras because they’re that good.
Crash Hot Potatoes
12 whole new potatoes (2 or 3 potatoes per serving)
3 Tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
Rosemary, or other herbs of choice, to taste

Grease a sheet pan with olive oil.
Place the boiled potatoes on the pan, leaving space between them.
Use a potato masher to gently press each potato, then rotate and press again.
Brush potatoes with olive oil, and season with salt , pepper, and herbs.
