  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Place a large rimmed baking sheet in the oven to preheat.
  2. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add potatoes, cover and steam until just tender, 12 to 14 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine 1½ tablespoons oil, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  4. Brush the hot baking sheet with the remaining ½ tablespoon oil. Place the steamed potatoes on the pan, skin-side up, and smash with the bottom of a jar or smooth side of a meat mallet. Drizzle with the garlic oil. Roast until browned on the bottom, about 15 minutes.

I made these last night and they were a hit even with the pickiest eaters. I liked the idea of steaming the potatoes ahead of time, which I did in my microwave steamer. Otherwise followed the directions exactly and they turned out perfectly.
