Smashed Potatoes July 29, 2008

These beautiful, tricolored potatoes. Oh my. They were so tiny and soft and pretty and I knew that I’d finally found the potatoes to make 101cookbooks smashed potatoes. It’s not so much a recipe as it is a way of cooking potatoes. Something about the color and texture (soft on the inside and crisp on the outside) is so perfect.

Small potatoes
oil
salt/pepper
Paprika OR spicy seasoned salt (I used a Caribbean flavor)

Boil the potatoes in salt water until tender but not falling apart. Do not peel! Once done, drain and smash the potatoes carefully with a fork. Heat oil in a skillet and cook smashed potatoes until crisp on each side. Salt and pepper while cooking. Enjoy with an egg and a cup of coffee.

Notes: I enjoyed the spicy seasoned salt on the potatoes. And of course, the color of the purple potatoes.

Servings: 2 servings
