Flat, Broke & Busted Potatoes

10-12 red potatoes (or however many you’d like to serve)

Salted water

Olive oil

2-3 teaspoons minced garlic

Coarse grain salt

Black pepper

Chopped fresh chives (or whichever herbs you have handy)

Sour cream (optional)


Boil potatoes in liberally salted water until fork-tender (cooking time depends on the size of the potatoes but I usually check for tenderness after about 15 minutes).


Drain potatoes and place on a large baking sheet. Using the heel of your hand, a juice glass, a meat mallet, a potato masher or whatever gets the job done, press down on the potatoes until they’re flat, broke and busted.


Drizzle each potato with olive oil. Top each potato with minced garlic then sprinkle with salt, pepper and chives.


Bake at 425 for 30-35 minutes or until potatoes are gold brown and crispy around the edges (again, cooking time depends on the size of the potatoes).


Serve with a dollop of sour cream if desired.
