Baked And Boiled Potatoes

twice cooked taters

Now here’s a fun little side that could be a good addition to your Super Bowl Party menu.  I found this idea on Pinterest as well.  It’s really simple and really versatile.  Not to mention, it makes a nice presentation.  I use roasting size potatoes, which worked, but it would probably be even better if you used tiny potatoes (fingerlings).  That’s just my thought.  There’s not really a site (that I know of) with an exact recipe for these, but they’re so easy, they really don’t need a recipe.


  1. Wash and boil potatoes whole.  (Just make as many as needed.)
  2. Once the potatoes are soft, remove from water and place on a baking sheet.
  3. Using a spoon or spatula, squish the potato.
  4. Season as you see fit.  (I put a dollop of butter on each potato, and seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and parsley flakes.)
  5. Cook until tips and edges are crispy in a 350-degree oven.
  6. Serve!


Seasoning Suggestions:

  • drizzle on your favorite cooking oil
  • chopped green onion (the green part)
  • bacon bits
  • chives
  • sour cream (added after baking)
  • shredded cheese (added after baking)
