I love potatoes. This sentence is on my “about me” page, “I especially like chicken, potatoes and baked goods, so you’ll see a lot of those around here.” so I was really excited when Klondike Brands contacted me to try out their Rose Potatoes. You can find Klondike Brands at most any grocery store. I’ve seen them at my Meijer and Target.
I had a really hard time picking something to make with them. The possibilities are endless with potatoes. In the end, since they sent me a 5 lb bag, I made two dishes. First, I decided to keep it simple and made these “crash hot potatoes” that I’ve had pinned for a really long time (see option #2 here).
These rose potatoes have a really nice buttery flavor, creamy texture and a thin skin so they easily mash. I ate them just like this but I bet adding some sour cream and a little crumbled bacon might be great, too.
The Johnny’s Seasoned Sea Salt was also really good and so pretty. There’s something about seeing pepper on my food that I love. I see myself putting it on most everything. I’ve already put it on my scrambled eggs.
Guess what? Klondike is letting me give away FOUR prize packs so you have the chance to win some potatoes and seasonings and try them for yourself. Enter to win after the recipe…
- 6 potatoes halved (I used Klondike Rose Potatoes)
- ~3 Tablespoons olive oil
- Johnny's Seasoned Sea Salt to taste
- fresh dill to taste
- freshly ground black pepper to taste
- The potatoes I used were fairly large, so I cut them in half. Add the potatoes to a large pot of salted water and bring them to a boil. Cook until fork tender then drain.
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
- Drizzle olive oil on a sheet pan. Spread the cooked potatoes onto the pan, leaving room in between.
- Using a potato masher (or an egg masher in my case - isn't he cute?!), lightly smash the potatoes.
- Brush the tops of the smashed potatoes with olive oil. They look like a mess, but stick with me.
- Sprinkle potatoes with seasonings - I used Johnny's Seasoned Sea Salt, freshly ground black pepper and fresh dill.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes start to brown.
- I paired them with a little salad and ate them for lunch. Yumm.
