New Potatoes

Ozark, MO(Zone 6a)

I just dug up our potatoes, Pontiac Red and Yukon Gold. They did fine and I've got a bunch of 'taters, mostly large, stored in the dark now. There were some small ones too, half-dollar size, and I'm wondering how to use those other than the usual "green beans and new potatoes" dish.

We'll enjoy them with beans of course, but does anyone here have other ways to fix "new potatoes"?

Creamed new potatoes and peas. Always a favorite around here.

Roasted - Quartered or halved depending on size, toss with oil and herbs, Cook on high temp (400 degf), turning every 15 minutes until done.

We like them roasted too. I keep them whole and oil with oil that has mashed garlic, then sprinkle with Kosher salt. Like Susan, I cook at a high temperature, but even higher...like 450. Also often add chopped rosemary. The salt makes a nice crust. This is good with sweet potatoes too. The savory treatment is a nice contrast with the sweet potato.

Soup also - chowder, potato, etc.

I like them roasted too. But there is also the nirvana of Crash Hot Potatoes - uuuummmmmmm!

Crash potatoes do look good.

They are wonderful!! I make a lot when I make them because any that are left over are a treat for breakfast, reheated and topped with a poached egg, or scrambled up with a bit of ham and onion and beaten egg! Ree Drumond got the recipe from someone in Australia and credited that person but Rachel Ray did it on her program and gave credit to neither of them. We top ours with a little sour cream.

Oh, I love the crash potatoes too! Good idea about using the left overs with breakfast the next day ... if only there were left overs. Guess I'll just have to make more.

waukesha, WI(Zone 5a)

Believe me, they do not all go out on the serving dish because then there would be no leftovers.

THANKS, MaryMcP - for posting that link to the Crash Hot Potatoes video. I finally got to make them this evening.

It's too hot to run the oven indoors, so I cooked these on our gas barbecue, 450 degrees for 25-30 minutes. We used half Yukon Gold and half Pontiac Red new potatoes from the garden, and they turned out equally great. My wife seasoned the 'taters with olive oil, salt and pepper, and home-grown chives and thyme. Our okra is starting to bear and I put today's small picking of okra pods, with olive oil, salt, and pepper, on the tray between the potatoes for roasting.

These Crash Potatoes are really good and we'll be making them a lot more in the future. Thanks again!

You are most welcome Ozark. *IF* there's any left for breakfast, reheated and topped with a fried egg is good.

Thanks for the Crash Potato Recipe. My neighbor just gave me new potatoes and I can't wait to try these. It looks wonderful!

I tried them and they are wonderful. The left over ones were delicious too reheated in microwave.

Johnson City, TN(Zone 6b)

I couldn't wait to try the smash potatoes. They are so easy to prepare and look good on the plate. I prepared them for dinner tonight and my husband loved them. There were no leftovers.

Since first trying Crash Potatoes only about 10 days ago, we've found lots of ways to enjoy them. Just plain, with the olive oil and seasonings, they're great. We had pork chops one meal, so I made white gravy in the pan and topped my 'tater with that. Mmmmm.

For breakfast as recommended, my wife and I each had a reheated Crash Potato with an over-easy egg upside down on top, runny yolk running down on the potato. Good! For another meal I put sour cream on my 'tater and my wife put Thousand Island dressing on hers - great stuff. One I haven't tried yet - I swear I'm gonna chop up a Crash Potato and roll it up in a flour tortilla with garden salsa to make a burrito. Yep.

Again, MaryMcP, thanks for letting us know about these. It seems Crash Potatoes are so versatile they're good most any way you eat them. There must be lots of ways to use them I haven't thought of. More ideas, anyone?

we're having our leftovers from last night with eggs and chicken sausage tonight...chop it all up and mixed together. it's what my mom called "Bubbles & Squeak".
