Crispy Crushed Potatoes

Have you ever had that moment where you've decided on what you're having for dinner but just can't settle on what you're going to serve it with? I get that all the time..it's annoying isn't it?!

How about crispy crushed potatoes? They are a tasty accompaniment to any meal and are so easy to make. To make your own, you will need;

  • New potatoes (salad or baby potatoes will also work)
  • Small amount of oil
  • Salt
  • Mixed herbs

Scrub your potatoes whilst bringing a large pan of water to the boil. Carefully add the potatoes (whole) into the boiling water and cook for around 20 minutes (or until tender).

Drain the water from pan, leaving your potatoes to sit and steam dry for a couple of minutes. Place them on a baking tray then crush them with either a fork, spoon or rolling pin (whatever you find easiest). Drizzle some oil over the potatoes, add a small pinch of salt and a good sprinkling of mixed herbs.

Place in an oven preheated to 220°c (200°c fan) for 15-20 minutes, or until crispy and beginning to brown. Serve and tuck in.
