Oh, man are these good! I saw a recipe for something similar posted earlier in the week and had to give these a try.
I used some regular Russet Potatoes, which I cut in half, but I think they would be great with red potatoes as well.
- 6-8 potatoes, washed well
- 1/2 stick butter, melted
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper (We like Lawry’s Garlic Salt)
- Other seasonings, as desired
Preheat oven to 400.
Grease a large baking sheet.
Make sure the potatoes are washed well and place in a pot.
Cover with water and boil 20-30 minutes until fork tender.
Drain well and place on baking sheet.
Smash slightly with a potato masher…
Or a fork.
Drizzle with olive oil and then butter. Sprinkle with seasonings and bake 20-30 minutes.
You can place them under the broiler for a few minutes if you like.
For loaded potatoes, you can top with sprinkled cheese, chives, and bacon bits. Broil 5-10 minutes.
