The Humble Potato

Prepared a really yummy dinner for a group of friends last night, and while they requested the usual Beer Battered Tacos (see recipe in previous post), I decided to test out something I’ve been wanting to try for ages — and oh my goodness they were delicious.

The Smashed Potato 

Super easy to make, and super super yummy!

Small potatoes (e.g. Baby Yellow Dutch, Small Gold Yukon)

Olive oil

Rosemary

Sea Salt

2 Cloves Garlic

Place potatoes in bowl and coat with oil

Place poatoes and garlic cloves on lined baking tray and sprinkle generously with sea salt

Poke each potato with a fork and sprinkle very generously with rosemary. Place in oven (200C) for 30 minutes

Remove potatoes from the oven, press down with the back of a fork. Be careful not to press too hard too quickly or they may crumple

Place in oven for a further 30 minutes (or until skin is golden brown and crispy)

The result is a crispy on the outside, soft on the inside potato dish
