Cut any large potatoes in half, then boil or steam the potatoes until tender, around 15 mins
Drain the potatoes & return to the pan. Put back on the hob for a minute or two to steam off any excess water.
In your large & deep frying pan, add half the olive oil & put on the stove hob to heat up.
Once the oil is hot, carefully add the potatoes.
Use a potato masher to gently crush the potatoes. You want them to all sort of squish into each other.
Drizzle over the rest of the oil & add the sage leaves.
Season with salt & pepper to taste.
Let the potatoes sizzle on a low-medium heat, occasionally squishing them down a little more.
The potatoes should be ready in around 10 minutes. The longer you leave them, the better the crust, but beware not to burn!
Serve as part of a roast dinner or with some lentil loaf! Also amazing with some gravy!
