This is a great dish and it is unbelievably deeeeeeeeelicious! This is an Australian appetizer dish that I included in my new cookbook.


New potatoes 12 Small
Olive oil 2 Tablespoon , divided
Fresh lemon juice 2 Tablespoon
Sliced fresh parsley 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Non fat sour cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Chives 1 1/2 Tablespoon , finely chopped
Sea salt and pepper To Taste



Boil potatoes in pan of water until tender and drain.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.


Grease a large baking sheet with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil and place the potatoes. Smash each potato with your hand until they slightly break open.

Mix the remaining oil with the lemon juice. Drizzle mixture over the potatoes. Salt and pepper the potatoes. Bake for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are a bit crispy and golden.

Meanwhile, mix the chives with the sour cream.

Remove potatoes from the oven and sprinkle with the parsley.


Serve the potatoes with sour cream.
