Crisp Roasted Potatoes for Two

3/4 pound very small Yukon gold or other yellow-fleshed potatoes
Coarse kosher salt
2 tablespoons olive oil, lard, or duck fat
2 sprigs rosemary
3 cloves garlic, smashed
Cracked black pepper

1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Place potatoes in a small pot and cover completely with generously salted water. Bring water to a boil and cook potatoes until fork tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and allow potatoes to rest until cool enough to touch. Using the palms of your hands, carefully smash potatoes until flat but still in one piece.

2. Place potatoes on a small rimmed baking sheet or pan. Drizzle with duck fat and add rosemary and garlic to pan. Generously salt and pepper potatoes. Gently toss potatoes until evenly coated with the duck fat.

3. Roast potatoes for 20 minutes. Flip them, then roast an additional 8 to 10 minutes. Serve warm.

I not only like simply cooked foods, but foods that I can taste what they are suppose to taste like. A bit of salt/pepper, squeeze of lemon or piece of butter or fat leftover is good too.
I do appreciate your cooking Melissa thanks for all the great simple ideas.
