I was at a BBQ last night and the hostess made these amazing potatoes, so I had to share.
whole, med size new red potatoes, leaving the skin on
Boil the potatoes in a pot just until tender
Spray a cookie sheet with Pam
Put the potatoes one at a time on a cutting board, take a small pot and hit the potatoes firmly (with the bottom of the pot) so they are about 1/4" to 1/2" in height.
Spray both sides of the potato with Pam, (or brush on butter or margarine) add your spices (garlic pwdr, seasoning salt, pepper, etc) and place on cookie sheet.
Turn your oven to the broil setting and broil each side (turning a few times) until crispy. These were awesome.
