This recipe gives 8 servings.
2 lb (1 kg) Yukon Gold or Carisma potatoes
3 tablespoons (45 ml) melted butter
A little olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons (30 g) Parmesan cheese
NOTE: You can replace parsley with rosemary or thyme, or add them all. You can also add lemony flavor and oregano. Or, add bacon and the cheese of your choice. Let your creativity run wild!
Preheat the oven for broiling over medium-high heat (about 200°C | 400°F).
Place the potatoes in a large pot of salted water and bring to a boil.
Cook uncovered for 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes are tender when a fork is inserted. Drain well.
Lightly grease a large baking sheet or baking dish with a cooking oil spray.
Arrange the potatoes on the sheet and use a potato masher to flatten them slightly into just one piece (not too hard or they will be crushed).
Mix the butter, garlic and parsley. Pour this mixture over each potato. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
Grill until potatoes are golden and crisp (about 10-15 minutes).
Remove from oven, sprinkle with parmesan and return to oven until cheese is melted.
Season with a little salt and parsley and serve immediately.
