"Smashed" Twice Cooked Potatoes

After seeing a picture of these potatoes I just had to try them!  While potatoes may not be a vegetable you want to have everyday, they still have their fair share of health benefits.   While they are both fat-free and high in fiber and potassium, red potatoes are lower in calories and higher in protein than white potatoes. They also both contain vitamin C, iron and calcium.

Once out of the oven, these potatoes have a delicious crunchy skin and are very tastey!  The best part about these are the versatility of them.  Use the number of potatoes to accomodate your guests, and use whatever seasonings you prefer.

"Smashed" Twice Cooked Potatoes

Step One: Boil
Boil red potatoes until soft.  Approximately 20-30 minutes.  Test with a fork.

Step Two: Smash
Place the potatoes on a baking sheet.  Gently smash them down with a fork.  (Do this slow to avoid them falling apart.  If they do fall apart just push together and follow the rest of the instructions.  They will still taste just as delicious)

Step Three: Season
Drizzle with a little bit of olive oil.  Season with your choice of seasonings. (I used pepper, garlic powder and parsley)

Step Four: Bake
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
