The idea for these crash potatoes came from Pioneer Woman's blog. Essentially they are the same as the crispy roast potatoes recipe. However, this recipe is a bit more fun and kids could help in the kitchen smashing and 'painting' the potatoes.
2 lbs potatoes
2 tbsp butter, melted
rosemary, oregano, parsley, salt & pepper
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash potatoes and cut large potatoes into big chunks. Cook in boiling water for 10-12 minutes. Melt butter in a bowl and add herbs.
2. (here's the fun part) Smash... or crash... the potatoes with a potato masher on a baking sheet. Then 'paint' the melted butter on to each smashed potatoes.
3. Put the tray of potatoes in the oven for 25 minutes.
