Crash Hot Potatoes

This recipe has been talked about a lot lately, so I figured I would post it here to share with everyone. I saw it on Pioneer Woman Cooks a couple months ago and she got it from an Australian reader of hers. This is possibly the greatest potato side dish ever. Ever. They are simple and incredibly versatile. You don't have to use the garlic butter, you can match them to whatever you are eating with stuff like cheese and bacon or fresh herbs and olive oil. They want some kind of fat (butter, oil, bacon grease, etc) on top while they are baking, but any kind will do. Once they are done top them with stuff like more cheese, sour cream, pesto, cream sauce, chili, softened cream cheese mixed with garlic and onion, whatever you can think of.
