I made a yummy potato side dish last week. It was quick and easy to put together and so good! The leftovers even heated up well.
2 pounds small (2 inch) redskin potatoes (or cut to size)
6 tablespoons olive oil
seasoned salt and ground pepper to taste
4 pieces crisply cooked bacon, crumbled
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 500 degrees (yes - 500!)
Scrub potatoes and lay on baking sheet with sides. Pour about 3/4 cup water into baking sheet and cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes.
Remove potatoes from oven, drain and let cool for 10 minutes.
Toss with 3 tablespoons oil and place back onto baking sheet.
Take a cup and smash potatoes to about 1/2 " thick.
Drizzle with the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and pepper.
Place back into 500 degree oven and place on top rack. Bake for 15 minutes.
Move potatoes to a lower rack and bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle cheese and bacon over all. Return to oven for about 5 minutes to melt cheese.
