  • 2 pounds red potatoes
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 4 TBSPs butter melted
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/4 tssp dried basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese


  • 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.
  • Season the potatoes with salt and pepper.  Combine the melted butter, garlic, and dried seasoning.  Pour the mixture over the potatoes and then top them with the cheeses.
  • Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the cheese is gooey and melted.
