Recipe type: Sde Dish
Serves: 4
  • 1 pound small potatoes (either small new potatoes or fingerlings)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  1. Cook the potatoes until fork tender (in the oven, microwave, or by boiling them). Spread a thin layer of olive oil on a rimmed baking sheet, then place the potatoes on the baking sheet. Using a meat mallet or the back of a spatula, press the potatoes down so that the skin bursts and they are about a half inch thick. Drizzle liberally with olive oil, then season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Bake at 400 degrees until the edges are crispy and brown, about 15 minutes.
