21. Crispy Smashed Potatoes
2 pounds baby potatoes
Place baby potatoes in a pot of water, bring to a boil and cook for 20 minutes or until fork tender. Drain the potatoes and let cool. (Potatoes can be refrigerated overnight at this point.) Place the potatoes on a cutting board or work surface and, using the palm of your hand, press down firmly to smash each potato, making sure it doesn’t come apart. Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat and cover the bottom of the pan with a thin layer of oil. Place the potatoes in the pan, sprinkle with salt and allow to cook for 5-6 minutes on each side (add more oil to the pan as you go), or until crispy and golden.
