  • 1-1/2 pound s baby red OR gold potatoes
  • 1/4 cup Mazola® Corn Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black fine grind pepper

  1. Step 1) Place potatoes in a medium saucepan. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Boil potatoes for 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked through. Drain potatoes and cool for 10 minutes or until cool enough to handle.
  2. Step 2) Position oven rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat oven to 450°F. Cover a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Arrange potatoes on baking sheet about 2-inches apart. Using a spatula, smash each potato to about 1/2-inch thickness. Press together if they fall apart.
