Get your frustrations out while making dinner! After you boil baby potatoes, carefully smash them down using the base of a glass or cup.

Then by drizzling them with some oil and baking them, a flavorful crispy crust is created.

Boiling, then baking, gives these baby potatoes a great crispy crust.
  • 1 lb small potatoes
  • Vegetable or olive oil (your preference)
  • Coarse salt
  • Herbs or seasonings of your choice
  1. Boil potatoes whole until just tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. On a greased baking sheet, place all drained potatoes. Using the base of a glass, slowly and gently push down on each potato until it just breaks. Continue until all are done. Drizzle more oil generously over potatoes, then sprinkle with coarse salt.
  3. Bake at 450°F for about 35 minutes or until crisp, turning once (or just turn on broiler at end for a few minutes to brown tops instead of turning).
