twitter potatoes titlesThese cute potatoes are simple to make, and probably get you some attention in the form of eye-rolling from your social media-savvy kids – right before they eat them all up!

Start with 6-8 small potatoes, scrub them and cut them in half lengthwise to give you the flattest cut surface area. Use your knife to score the cut side of the potatoes into the hashtag (tic tac toe) sign.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl mix together 2-3 Tablespoons of olive oil, 3/4 teaspoon  smoked paprika  and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt. Dip the potatoes into the bowl of seasoned olive oil coating all sides but especially the cut side. Place the potatoes cut side up on a baking sheet or baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until tender on the inside and golden brown on the outside.
