  3. Wash the small potatoes and prick each with a fork a couple times. Microwave all the potatoes on a plate for about 8-10 minutes or until they are soft when you prick them with a fork.
  4. Add the microwaved potatoes to the baking dish.  Use a potato masher to mash the little potatoes.  (It doesn't take much.  Don't over mash them. They should be about 1/2"thick after you smash them.  Drizzle the butter and oil over the smashed potatoes.
  5. Sprinkle garlic salt on the smashed potatoes and bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 30 minutes or until the potatoes are golden. Add the cheese and bacon and bake for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the bacon is a little crisp.
