Equipment

  • large pot
  • oven

Ingredients
  

  • 24 oz fingerling potatoes (My bag was a mix of colors)
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup fresh herbs (I used rosemary and parsley)
  • salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425°
  • scrub potatoes and if some are larger than others, slice those in half to be of equal size
  • Boil a large pot of water
  • Place potatoes in pot and boil for about 10 – 15 minutes, until tender (try to poke with a fork)
  • Drain potatoes and let cool for a few minutes
  • Mince the garlic and chop the herbs
  • In a small bowl, mix the minced garlic and olive oil
  • take potatoes out of strainer and place on sheet pan. Smash each potato with a masher or the back of a glass (it will be kind of a mess but that's ok! They're not meant to be perfect)
  • Either brush potatoes with the garlic oil or sprinkle over with a spoon, making sure to get garlic and oil on each on
  • add a little salt over all (depending on your preference) and sprinkle herbs over the potatoes
  • Bake for about 30 minutes, checking to see that they are golden brown and crispy
