Smashed Potatoes with Cheese from Cooking and Cooking
Yield: Serves 3

Wash the potatoes and place them into a pot. Pour water until potatoes are covered. Add 1 teaspoon salt and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook covered until done - a fork can easily be poked through them. Drain water from potatoes and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Generously drizzle a baking sheet with olive oil. Place the potatoes on the baking sheet. Crush each potato with the flat bottom of a glass until it is about 1/2-inch thick.

Using a pastry brush, brush each potato with olive oil. Season with salt and black pepper and bake them in the oven until golden and crispy on top, about 20 minutes.

Once the potatoes are crispy divide the mozzarella cheese on top of the potatoes and bake until cheese is melted, about 5 more minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
