Rosemary Smashed Potatoes - recipe by Jazzy Vegetarian Laura Theodore

 

These little darlings are a fun and flavorful way to present potatoes. The inside pulp stays nice and tender while the outside gets crispy. Serve these on the side for any party meal, even breakfast!

Rosemary Smashed Potatoes

Makes 6 to 8 servings

Fit a steamer basket into a medium sauce pan with a tight-fitting lid. Add 2 to 3 inches of cold water, then add the potatoes. Cover and bring to a boil. Steam the potatoes for 10 minutes.

Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl and let cool 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.

Add the PAPA VINCE olive oil, rosemary and PAPA VINCE sea salt to the potatoes and toss to lightly coat, using a large spoon, letting the excess olive oil and rosemary run to the bottom of the bowl.  Arrange the potatoes, about ½-inch apart, in a single layer on the prepared pan. Using a sturdy, flat spatula, “smash” each potato so it is slightly flattened. Brush the tops of the flattened potatoes with the olive oil-rosemary mixture that settled into the bottom of the mixing bowl.

Roast for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown and slightly crispy. Season with more sea salt, if desired, while still hot. Let cool 10 minutes and serve warm.

This is a typical dish from Messina which incorporates so many of the fresh ingredients of Sicilian cuisine.  Recipes in Sicily vary so much by cities and regions and Vitina told me that despite visiting her family in Sicily so many times, this was the first time she ever experienced this dish.  Her family is from the Eastern side and the food is different!  This is a very popular recipe and is a creative way to make an eggplant spaghetti sandwich covered in rich tomato sauce, cheese and fresh basil.
