Smished Potatoes

    1 hour 20 minutes

    This is a great recipe as an alternative to baked or roast potatoes. It produces fantastically crispy potatoes which are still soft inside!

    Great idea. Added a sprinkle of pepper steak seasoning on top for some added flavour. Family all approved.  -  11 Jul 2013


    These were pretty good, though they do take a loooooong time. I smished mine a bit too much, as they were too crispy. If I make them again, I'll definately smoosh a little less. I also don't recommend making this if it is close to 90 F outside. I like to add some herbs to give these a little kick: this time I used garlic and crushed red pepper.  -  21 May 2013


    Wasn't quit sure how these would turn out but I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted them. Make sure you don't smish them too flat.  -  19 May 2013
