Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and boil until they are fork tender, about 15 - 20 minutes. Drain and pat dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.
Place potatoes on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. (Alternately you could can use a greased baking sheet). Use a potato masher or something with a flat bottom (we used the bottom of a glass) to gently flatten each potato.
Mix together the melted butter and minced garlic, then brush a liberal amount onto each potato. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese.
Bake at 400F for 20 to 25 minutes, until the potatoes are a golden brown and have reached your desired crispiness. Serve right away.
