- 4 TBSPs butter melted
- 2 cloves garlic crushed
- 1/4 tsp dried oregano
- 1/4 tsp dried parsley
- 1/4 tssp dried basil

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon kosher salt. Add the potatoes (whole) and cook for 30 minutes. Drain the potatoes.
Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the cooked potatoes on the baking sheet. Gently push down the potatoes with a fork or potato mashers. You are looking to just crack them, not mash them.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the cheese is gooey and melted.
