Ingredients

  • Small red potatoes (however many you'd like)

  • Olive oil

  • Kosher Salt

  • Black Pepper

  • Cheese of your choice (cheddar, fontina, etc.)

Directions

Pre-heat your oven to 450 degrees. Fill a pot with water, add a little salt, and bring to a boil. When the water is boiling, add as many potatoes as you'd like. Cook the potatoes until you can easily pierce them with a fork. Drain and set aside. Prepare a rimmed baking sheet by greasing it with olive oil. Place each potato on the baking sheet, leaving a few inches between each potato. Use a potato masher to gently smoosh the potato so that it is mostly flat. Don't push too hard though, you don't want to have to peel these potatoes off the pan. Brush each potato with olive oil and liberally salt with kosher salt, and sprinkle with black pepper. Bake the potatoes in the oven for 18 minutes. Remove potatoes from the oven and sprinkle any cheese of your choice on top. I used a combination of cheddar and fontina because I had both on hand. Return the potatoes back to the oven and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Enjoy!
