Crash Hot Potatoes Pin #3 - Complete

Pinterest is such a wonderful place to find recipes.  I love recipes that include a great, visual picture.  I've made a number of recipes from pinterest, but I waited to make this pinterest recipe for pinterest challenge #3.

This recipe was simple, quick, and beyond delicious.  The simplest of directions are as follows: boil, smash, season, and bake.  
Ingredients: Red Bliss Potatoes, Olive Oil, Kosher Salt, and Pepper 
Heavily coat a baking dish with olive oil.
I "painted" the olive oil, on the baking dish, with a pastry brush.   
BOIL potatoes until you can push a fork through the potato.
Remove potatoes from water.  SMASH with a potato smasher.
Season.  The original recipe call for you to drizzle the top of the potato
With olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper.
I deviated a little.  

I used a slice of butter, kosher salt, fresh pepper and scallions.
I loved how the scallions added color.
BAKE.  Place potatoes on the top rack, in a very hot, preheated oven.
Preferably 425 degrees for 20 minutes.
I honestly could have eaten the entire tray of potatoes.
It's a good thing the Lord continues to enhance my level of self-control.

I accompanied these potatoes with my bacon cheeseburger meatloaf and freshly steamed broccoli.
