One Word = DELICIOUS! Thank you for posting :)


  1. Microwave, boil or bake baby potatoes until fork tender.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Drizzle olive oil on a baking sheet, set potatoes on sheet and using a potato masher, gently smash each potato down, rotating masher both ways (so it looks like a thick cookie).
  3. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt/pepper and sprinkle cut fresh herbs and garlic over each.
  4. Top with grated Parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes.
