    Default Crash baked potatoes again.

    Hello All!

    I came across another method for crashing the boiled potatoes. It is
    simply to cover them with plastic wrap and squash with the heel of the
    hand. It looks like a good way to keep control of the process.

    I don't see the benefit. . .I think herbed, oven-roasted potatoes crisp
    better, look better, taste better and are less work. All the same materials
    are used.

    yes, I have. That's why I said I thought the oven-roasted were better. I
    tried them the other week when someone was questioning how to mash/smash
    them without sticking My Crash potatoes were crispy and I used the same
    herbs and potatoes I did for oven roasted. I'm talking about the oven
    roasted red potatoes that are cut in quarters, marinated in a mixture of
    olive oil, crushed garlic, freshly ground coarse pepper, freshly picked and
    chopped thyme and rosemary. Spread on a pan, sprinkle with Kosher salt and
    roast at 450F until the cut surfaces are evenly brown and crispy and
    slightly puffed.
    Maybe it is my preference. Oven roasted seems like less work. I was very
    positive that I would like the Crash potatoes and then was disappointed.

    They are all good, and it is always nice to have something different for a
    change
