Crash Hot Potatoes

I make a lot of potato side dishes however I normally just quarter, toss with some EVOO and whichever seasonings pair well with the main course.  Truth be told - it's getting a little stale.  I've had these Crash Hot Potatoes from Pioneer Woman on my "to-make list" for.ev.er and I've finally made them.  I'll definitely be making these more often.  Not only are they delicious, they were so easy to make.

Ingredients:
12 whole New Potatoes (or Other Small Round Potatoes)
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Kosher Salt To Taste
Black Pepper To Taste
Rosemary (or Other Herbs Of Choice) To Taste

Directions:
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in as many potatoes as you wish to make and cook them until they are fork-tender.

On a sheet pan, generously drizzle olive oil. Place tender potatoes on the cookie sheet leaving plenty of room between each potato.

With a potato masher, gently press down each potato until it slightly mashes, rotate the potato masher 90 degrees and mash again. Brush the tops of each crushed potato generously with more olive oil.

Sprinkle potatoes with kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper and fresh chopped rosemary (or chives or thyme or whatever herb you have available.)

Bake in a 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
