Crispy Roasted Smashed Red Potatoes

Potatoes cook good in a microwave oven,
it cuts the cooking time down a lot.
Then roasting these in some olive oil
and seasoning spices makes these great
tasting, creamy inside and crispy skins.
I serve two per person as a side dish.

8 small red potatoes
olive oil to taste
salt to taste
sweet smoked paprika

Scrub potatoes while rinsing under cold water.
Place potatoes in a glass bowl, add 1/2 cup water.
Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high
for about 8 minutes or until just fork tender.
Place potatoes on a baking sheet,
use a potato masher press them down to
smash them to about 1/4" thickness.
drizzle potatoes with olive oil,
season with salt, pepper and paprika to taste.
Place under the broiler for 8 minutes, turn potatoes
and continue broiling until crispy and creamy good.
