Jules’ Diner – Roasted New Potatoes

My darling husband is a slow-cooker, comfort food kinda’ guy, but I don’t always have time for all-day-cooking. That’s why I love recipes that taste slow-cooked, but are quick & easy.

These roasted potatoes are so delicious you could make a meal out of them alone.
Roasted New Red Potatoes

10-12 small, red potatoes
Kosher salt
Fresh cracked black pepper
1/2 stick butter, melted
Small bunch fresh parsley, chopped
Pinch of dried basil

•  Preheat the oven to 425º.

1.  Rinse the potatoes well and place them in a large pot of salted water. Bring the water to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-high and cook until just tender, about 10-12 minutes.

2.  Remove the potatoes from the pot and place them on a cookie sheet. With two hands place a saucer on top of each potato and slowly press down. The skin should break and the potato will flatten slightly. You don’t want mashed potatoes, just smashed and slightly flat.

3.  Using a teaspoon, drizzle a bit of melted butter over each potato.  Sprinkle each one liberally with kosher salt, black pepper, a tiny pinch of dried basil and parsley.

4.  Bake at 425º for 30 minutes or until golden.
