Potato Smashers

Crispy, fluffy bites of SMASHED potatoes that you CRISP in the oven! These seem to be the rage these days & have their origin in Australia. Thanks to some good cook Down Under now we can have them right at home! ENJOY THESE WONDERFUL POTATOES FOODIES!

8 Red Skinned Potatoes or Regular White Potatoes
Olive Oil
Seasonings, Coarse Sea Salt, Paprika, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Parsley, Garlic Powder ... etc. 
Boil potatoes in lightly salted water until fork tender about 20 minutes!
Remove from water & drain well. Take a cookie sheet with an edge & drizzle enough olive oil to coat the bottom liberally. Place potatoes on the oiled sheet & with a potato masher, SMASH them down like you see in the above picture, not flat but almost flat. Now drizzle with more olive oil about 1/2 tsp. per potato. Season as you like with the seasoning I listed or use some of your own favorites. Bake in a preheated 450 Degree Oven for 20 to 25 minutes! Serve Crisp & Hot with any meat, poultry or fish!
