But there are only two of us, so anyone with any ideas?
Hi, I'm cooking crushed potatoes as we speak!
Wash the potatoes, but don't peel.
Boil until just soft.
Drain & lay on a baking tray.
Get your potato masher & push down on each potato & turn the masher as you go..about 90 degrees, so you end up with the skin broken & potato coming out. Or you can just fork out the top.
Drizzle EVOO & Himalayan salt over all the potatoes.
Bake in a hot oven for 30-40 mins, until crisp on top.
Hope that makes sense...they are gorgeous!

Any kind of creamy, cheesy, garlicy potato gratin would be my favorite. There are so many variations, but I've yet to meet one I haven't liked - lol!
