    Default Smashed potatoes

    Ok, I feel like an idiot. For the life of me I can't find the link to
    the blog that had those smashed (or was it bang?) potatoes? The ones
    boiled then baked.
    Anyone have it available? Thanks in advance.

    I put that recipe in my database so here it is:

    -= Exported from BigOven =-

    Crash Hot Potatoes

    They're so simple, it's terrifying. Well, not terrifying.but almost. They're
    a lovely twist on the tired old baked potato, and they perfectly embody a
    quality I always strive to achieve in my cooking: Flavorful, Crispy Surface
    Area. I'll go into that principle more in a separate post, but just know I'll
    be pontificating about Flavorful, Crispy Surface Area soon. And I'll make
    you a believer.

    Recipe By:
    Serving Size: 4
    Cuisine:
    Main Ingredient:


    -= Ingredients =-
    8 small Potato
    1 Olive oil
    Kosher salt
    Black pepper
    Chives

    -= Instructions =-
    Begin by bringing a pot of salted water to a boil.
    Add in as many potatoes as you wish to make, and cook them until they're
    fork-tender.
    Next, generously drizzle olive oil on a sheet pan.
    This will mean the difference between the potatoes sticking and not
    sticking, so don't be shy here.
    When the potatoes are tender, place them on the cookie sheet.Giving them
    plenty of room to spread out.
    Next, grab your potato masher and gently press down on the potato until it
    slightly mashes.
    Then rotate the masher 90 degrees and finish flattening it. Of course, you
    don't want to absolutely smash it into the pan-you want it almost to
    resemble a cookie.
    Repeat until all are flattened. And really, I don't know why you couldn't
    use the bottom of a glass for this step if you don't have a potato masher.
    The surface might not be as textured and interesting, but I think it still
    might work.
    Next, brush the tops rather generously with olive oil.
    Next, grab some Kosher salt. You can use regular salt, but I'd really
    recommend using kosher. It adheres to the potatoes more easily and really
    flavors them nicely without getting too salty.
    Remember: potatoes need salt. Don't skimp!
    Be ye ever as generous with fresh ground black pepper
    Now, you can grab some chives.or thyme.or whatever herbs you have available.
    I had this in my garden
    Whatever herb you use, just chop it pretty finely and sprinkle over the top.
    That's it!
    Now throw them onto the top rack of a very hot (450-degree) oven, and cook
    them for 20-25 minutes.
    ..Or until they're golden and crispy and sizzling.

    Thanks Made 'em last night and they're a keeper! The crunchy olive
    oily bits reminds me of my fathers fried potatoes which I never make,
    but since these are so simple I can "fake it" now.
