Hi everyone! I love quick and easy side dishes, especially in the summer. When we cook on the grill in the summer, these Cracked Potatoes are a perfect addition.
I used small red new potatoes. Just boil them in water until fork tender.
Drain the water and add butter, salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. You can use any seasoning that you like though.
Toss in the pan with the butter and seasonings.
While they are still hot, place on a baking sheet.
With a fork, gently flatten them to "crack" the potato.
Place in the oven just to crisp up the tops. They are already cooked and hot, so you just want then to get a little crunchy on the edges.
I used the broiler mode on my oven to crisp them up. Only took a few minutes with a hot broiler.
Top with parsley or even some Parmesan cheese if you 'd like.
You can really mix things up with the flavors on these potatoes.
They are so yummy...I hope you like them too!!
