Boil potatoes for about 20 min until fork tender. Drain. Coat a rimmed cookie sheet well with olive oil. Place potatoes on cookie sheet and press with the bottom of a glass. Drizzle with more oil and salt and pepper to taste. Bake at 425 for 20- 30 minutes until slightly golden. Maybe add some onion powder, shredded cheddar cheese, and bacon bits to the top..
cracked potatoes - great way to make red potatoes! Why didn't I think of this? After boiling to tender, draining, and tossing with butter and seasoning, place on baking sheet and smash gently with fork. Then crisp in oven!
