900g / 2 lbs
Sea salt & fresh ground black pepper
to your taste
dried basil leaves
a small bunch of fresh chopped basil
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F and spray a large baking sheet with cooking oil.
Place the potatoes in a large stockpot and fill it with water, just enough to cover them.
Bring it to boil then lower the heat and simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until they are fork tender, then drain.
Arrange the potatoes on a baking sheet, making sure you leave some space between them.
Using a potato masher, press down in the middle and smash the potato lightly; repeat the process for all of them.
In a small bowl, mix the olive oil with herbs and garlic.
Spoon the oil mixture over potatoes then season generously with salt and pepper.
Place them in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
Then, you need to sprinkle generously with parmesan cheese and return to the oven for another 2-3 minutes.
Serve warm with a dollop of sour cream and fresh chopped herbs.
