I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for new side dish ideas. I mean, there are only so many nights I can serve steamed broccoli or brown rice. And mashed potatoes get boring. So I was flipping through my Pioneer Woman cookbook and came across this recipe for Crash Hot Potatoes. GENIUS! I love baked potatoes, and I often mist them with olive oil and sprinkle them with sea salt. This recipe crashes down on my favorite baked potato method. Literally. Plus, it’s a whole heck of a lot faster than baking a potato.
This lightened up Pioneer Woman Recipe for Crash Hot Potatoes was achieved by misting the olive oil instead of ‘generously drizzling it’ all over everything. We love olive oil, but our butt doesn’t need us to be generous with it!
Boil them whole, smash them (be careful, because those suckers are slippery), mist them with olive oil, and then bake them until crispy.
So easy my mind was blown.
Crash Hot Potatoes are great for dinner, lunch, brunch, breakfast, or a late night snack. You can fancy them up with any number of fresh herbs or spices, or just eat them naked. Any way you look at it, it’s a great new way to eat the same old side dish!
