This recipe has been spread far and wide on Pinterest, Facebook, etc. My favorite part is you can make as few or many as you need to feed your family and friends. Then.....I realized if truffle oil is delicious on fries and in mashed potatoes, wouldn't it be DELICIOUS on these little potato morsels? Oh yes, it is!
It was just the two of us last night for supper, so I prepared a small batch.
6 - 8 white new potatoes
Black Truffle Oil for drizzling
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
Bring a saucepan of water to a boil over high heat. Add 1 T. kosher salt to water. Add potatoes and let them cook for 7 - 8 minutes until a knife can be inserted easily.
Drain potatoes and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
Using a heavy glass or a meat mallet, press downward on each potato until it is "smashed." Lightly salt and pepper the potatoes.
Bake for 15 minutes. Using a spatula, carefully turn the potatoes over. Salt and pepper this side and return to oven for 10 - 15 more minutes until golden browned.
Drizzle with black truffle oil and serve immediately.
