Ready in 30 minutes
4 new potatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic; crushed
1 tbsp chives; chopped
1 Salt; to taste
pepper; to taste
2 tbsp cheese; grated, I used Pepper Jack
1 tbsp Parmesan
Herbs of choice; optional
Wash potatoes well and place in salted water.
Bring to boil and cook till fork tender (15-20 minutes).
Mix oil with crushed garlic clove….and any herbs you like.
Line a baking sheet with parchment.
Place the potatoes on the parchment.
Using a potato crusher, crush the potatoes carefully.
You may also use a paper towel and press the potatoes with your palm. Just be gentle.
Sprinkle some salt and pepper.
Drizzle the garlic oil herb mixtrure over the potatoes.
Add some Parmesan/Pepper Jack cheese and chives.
Broil for 7-10 minutes or until nice and crispy.

Sometimes, I bake the potatoes with the Parmesan cheese for 10-15 minutes, add the Pepper Jack cheese at the last moment, and then broil until golden brown.
