Smash Potatoes

Ingredients:

12 whole New Potatoes (or other small round potatoes)

3 Tablespoons Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Olive Oil Etcetera

Kosher Salt to Taste

Black Pepper to Taste

Parmesan Cheese

Rosemary (or other herbs of choice) to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450F.

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 Arbequina Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (or spray with EVO Trigger Sprayer). 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 Extra-Virgin Olive Oil.

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

Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
