Smashed Golden Potatoes

These potatoes are soooo yummy and soooo easy!!! I am always on the lookout for easy, different side dishes and this one is definitely a keeper!

2-3 lbs of small potatoes (red or golden or fingerling - and don't be shy, if your family will eat more, use more!)
salt to taste
pepper to taste
garlic salt to taste
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Scrub potatoes, place in water in a large pot and bring to a boil (leave the skins on!). Cook for about 15 minutes until almost done, drain. Grease a large cookie sheet with olive oil and place cooked potatoes on the cookie sheet. Take a large glass and smash each potato slightly. Drizzle with a little more olive oil (or you could use melted butter...) and season with salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Place in oven and cook for about 15-20 minutes until tops are golden and crispy. I'm telling you: This one rocks. Try it.
