  • In a large pot fill halfway with water and add potatoes. Heat over high heat until boiling, then reduce heat and cover for 30 minutes or until potatoes are soft.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Once potatoes are soft remove from water and dry. Place on cookie sheet and use a spatula to firmly press down and smash the potato then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Repeat until all are smashed. Bake on middle rack for 15-20 minutes, or until slightly crisp. 
  • Remove and sprinkle with cheese and cook an additional 5 minutes until cheese is melted. Once finished top with ranch and hot sauce and serve warm Enjoy!
