About once a month, my husband and I will eat BBQ Chicken with a potato and broccoli.  Recipes for all will be coming.  This first post I wanted to share one of two ways I like to make the potatoes for this meal.  The first recipe is from The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond.  She calls them Crash Hot Potatoes.  They are easy and I LOVE them!
Crash Hot Potatoes

12 whole New Potatoes (or Other Small Round Potatoes)
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Kosher Salt To Taste
Black Pepper To Taste
Rosemary (or Other Herbs Of Choice) To Taste - optional
Cheese - optional (my favorite is Bleu Cheese)

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in as many potatoes as you wish to make and cook them until they are fork-tender.

On a sheet pan, generously drizzle olive oil. Place tender potatoes on the cookie sheet leaving plenty of room between each potato.

With a potato masher, gently press down each potato until it slightly mashes, rotate the potato masher 90 degrees and mash again. Brush the tops of each crushed potato generously with more olive oil.

Sprinkle potatoes with kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper and fresh chopped rosemary (or chives or thyme or whatever herb you have available.) and cheese.

Bake in a 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
