Recipe: Easy, tasty twist on potatoes

May's edition of Everyday Food came with a great new idea for tasty potatoes- Roasted Smashed Potatoes with Salt and Vinegar.  If you like salt and vinegar potato chips, you'll like these potatoes.  If you think the chips are a bit much and you don't like having puckered lips from eating a potato, don't fear- these potatoes are milder and will not pucker your lips :-)

Roasted Smashed Potatoes with Salt and Vinegar (adapted from Everyday Food)
1.5 lbs one-bite or fingerling potatoes
kosher salt to taste
extra virgin olive oil (about 2 tbsp)
1/4 cup malt vinegar

What to do:
1. Bring potatoes to a boil in a large pot, cook for 20 minutes or until you can easily stick with a fork, but not so long that the potato falls apart when it is stuck.
2. Lay a clean dish towel on the counter and place potatoes on the towel in small groups.  Using your fist smash each potato.  The peel will split, but the potato will remain in one smashed piece.  Repeat for all potatoes.
3. Drizzle the first tbsp of oil on the bottom of a baking sheet.  Place smashed potatoes on the sheet, then drizzle remaining oil over the tops of potatoes.  Use a brush to spread the oil evenly.
4. Roast in the oven at 450 degrees for 35 minutes.  Toss with malt vinegar then sprinkle with kosher salt to taste.  Enjoy!

  2. Smashed potatoes are my favorite! My mom started making them a few years ago. I like to make them with small red potatoes :) We season with a little garlic and seasoning salt - yum!
