Cheesy Crash Potatoes

This is another twist on a Pioneer Woman recipe. Get creative and customize your crash potatoes the way you like them. This time I used seasoning from a potato topping packet and mild cheddar cheese, but I think my favorite was with just salt, pepper, goat cheese, and rosemary.

You'll need:
Red Potatoes
Butter, melted - 1/2 Tbsp. for each potato
Cheese, shredded
"Potato Topping" seasoning - a pinch on each potato
Olive oil for drizzling

This is one of my favorite toppings for potatoes. It's got salt, pepper, bacon bits, some dried herbs, and other tasty stuff. If you don't want to buy the topping packet, just make up your own.
Bring a pot of water to a boil, and cook potatoes until a fork slides right through them.

While the potatoes are cooking, shred up some cheese.

Then, drizzle the pan with some olive oil.

Place potatoes on top. (I was multi-tasking by cooking some asparagus on the same tray.)

Using a potato masher, smash each potato.

I probably should have used a bigger pan... Oh well, they'll still taste good.

Drizzle on some melted butter, and sprinkle with potato topping. 

Add the cheese. Don't be shy.

Bake on 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.
