  • Mixing Bowl
  • Stock Pot
  • Baking Sheet


  • 2 pounds mini gold Yukon potatoes
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons chives
  • 1 cup shredded Colby Jack Cheese


  • Rinse and gently scrub potatoes. Cook the potatoes in boiling water until fork tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  • While the potatoes are boiling, in a small mixing bowl combine the butter, black pepper, garlic and Old Bay Seasoning. Microwave until butter is melted and mix together well.
  • Drain the potatoes and gently pat dry.
  • Mix the olive oil and salt and pepper in a medium sized bowl. Roll each potato in the olive oil mixture until completely coated.
  • Place the potatoes on a rimmed cookie sheet and gently flatten with the bottom of a drinking glass.
  • With a pastry brush coat each smashed potato with the butter mixture.
  • Bake for about 5 minutes. Then pull out of oven and top all of the potatoes using 1 tablespoon of chives. Then sprinkle cheese over all the potatoes, then sprinkle the other tablespoon of chives evenly over the potatoes.
  • Bake in the oven for another 5 to 6 minutes.
