Boil potatoes whole for about 15 minutes or until fork tender.
Drain potatoes and place onto a greased (with olive oil) baking sheet.
Smash the potatoes down using either a potato masher or simply the bottom of a cup.
Brush generously with olive oil.
Sprinkle generously with sea salt.
Bake at 450°F for 20 minutes until good and crispy.
Top every one with a couple of tablespoon of cheese.
Place the pan under the broiler until the cheese starts to bubble.
