Crash New Potatoes

Crash New PotatoesSince we are huge fans of “potatoes” in general, making crushed New Potatoes seemed like a natural choice. These are so good because you get a soft creamy center like
mashed potatoes, but a crunchy crisp outside like roasted potatoes – delicious! One thing more they’re so simple, it’s almost terrifying, but they do take about half an hour – so plan accordingly.

Crash New Potatoes

Adapted from Home cooking in Montana

12 new potatoes (or Other Small Round Potatoes)
3 TBS olive oil
3 garlic clove
2 TBS chives
4 TBS grated cheese
2 TBS finely grated parmesan cheese

1. Wash potatoes well and place in salted water pot. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in potatoes and cook them until they are fork-tender (15-20 minutes).

2. Toss garlic cloves in the microwave. (Sometimes I put the whole bulb in) — 10 to 15 seconds will do the trick. Now peeling is much easier. The cloves practically pop — out of their skins, becoming more tender and easier to crush.

3. Mix oil with crushed garlic clove in a small bowl and Set aside.

  1. Thanks for a great recipe for the new potatoes I bought at the Farmer’s Market. A warning and a clarification: don’t use parchment paper under the broiler unless you want a fire (it’s usually only heat-proof to about 428F). Also, step 1 has you putting the potatoes in water twice. Better to put the potatoes in at the beginning so they heat evenly, not when the water is boiling.
