Crash Potatoes

I don’t know that anyone hasn’t had these, but just in case I thought I would post it. The recipe is from Pioneer Woman and we love it. I like to let the edges get extra crispy. MMMMM So delicious and such a nice alternative¬† to baked potatoes etc. Everyone needs a good idea for a side dish every now and again.
