Smashed Potatoes with Garlic and Herbs
This game-changing technique will alter your view of just how delicious a potato can be. First, you cook baby new potatoes in simmering water just until they're soft enough that you can smash them slightly with the bottom of your fist. Then, you transfer them to a baking pan, coat them with olive oil and salt and slide them into a blazing-hot oven. The banged-up edges of the potatoes will be brown and crisp, while the insides will be soft and pillowy.
