Easy Smashed Potatoes with Cracked Black Pepper Rub
Lunch - Brunch - Dinner
3 teaspoons Cracked Black Pepper Rub
8 medium red potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt to taste
Place washed potatoes in a 3 to 4 quart pot. Cover with cold water and boil until almost tender, 10-15 minutes. Drain.
When cool enough to handle, place the potatoes on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Crush each potato to about ¾ inch thick with a potato masher or the bottom of a glass or mug. Try to keep them intact as much as possible.
Drizzle with half of the olive oil and then sprinkle with 2 teaspoons Cracked Black Pepper Rub. Bake for 15 minutes and then carefully turn over using a spatula.
Drizzle with remaining olive oil and then sprinkle with the last teaspoon of Cracked Black Pepper Rub and the cheese. Bake for another 15 minutes.
