Step 1

Boil potatoes whole for about 15 minutes or until fork tender.

Drain potatoes and place onto a greased (with olive oil) baking sheet.

Smash the potatoes down using either a potato masher or just the bottom of a cup.

Brush generously with olive oil.

Sprinkle generously with sea salt.

Bake at 450°F for 20 minutes until good and crispy.

Top each one with about a tablespoon of cheese.

Place the pan under the broiler until the cheese starts to bubble.

Top with sour cream, bacon, and green onions (or chives).

Serve warm and enjoy!
