Ingredients

2 pounds/1 kg new potatoes

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Olive oil

Directions

  1. Scrub the potatoes and cook, unpeeled, in boiling salted water until tender. Drain. When cool enough to touch, squish them flat using a coffee cup or ramekin. Don't let them explode, just flatten until the edges break a bit, but they are still in one piece. Toss in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. 
  2. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F/200 degrees C. Spread the potatoes on a baking sheet and bake until crisp outside and soft inside, about 40 minutes.
