  • 4 medium Idaho potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup grated cheddar or marbled cheese
  • 1/2 cup bacon cooked and crumbled
  • optional: green onions & sour cream totally necessary in my opinion


  • Half potatoes and boil in large pot of salted water until fork-tender, about 15 minutes.
  • Drizzle half of the olive oil onto a baking sheet. Drain potatoes and place onto baking sheet. Using a potato masher, flatten potatoes to about 1/2-3/4 inch thick. Brush tops with remaining olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, sprinkle with cheese and bacon and return to oven for another 5 minutes to melt the cheese. Top with sour cream and green onions and serve.
