I first saw this 'recipe' in a BBC Good Food a couple of years back and meant to make it and never got around to it. Then the January '07 issue of Fine Cooking had a similar recipe. The recipe below is a shortened version of Fine Cooking's.
Crispy Flattened Potatoes
12 to 15 baby red or yellow potatoes (about 1 to 1.5 oz. each)
1). Boil. Put potatoes in saucepan and cover with at least one inch of water. Add salt. Bring to boil and cook potatoes until tender. When done cool. (I made these a day ahead of roasting and simply kept them in the fridge overnight).
2. Flatten. Flatten anyway you like I did so with a big ol knife (think smashing garlic). Flatten to about ½ inch. Dont worry if some break apart still use them.
3) Roast. Heat oven to 450. Cover large rimmed baking sheet with foil spray with nonstick oil. Put a couple of pats of butter on the baking sheet and put in oven until melted. Swish around so butter covers foil. Put potatoes on top then drizzle with olive oil. Cook about 20 25 minutes until nicely browned turn over and do the same. Remove from oven salt enjoy!!
