  • green onions, chopped
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Preheat oven on LOW broil.
  2. Wash potatoes and remove any eyes or damaged spots on the potatoes, if desired.

  4. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. When potatoes are done, remove them from the water, and arrange on prepared baking sheet. Use a potato masher and carefully press down on each potato to partially smash it. DO NOT smash them to hard, as they will fall apart.
  6. Melt butter in a bowl in the microwave. Then add minced garlic and stir.
  7. Spoon the butter mixture over the potatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste.
  8. Top each potato with grated cheese.
