Garlic butter smashed sweet potatoes

We had a nice dinner at home Saturday night and got steaks from our local butcher. To accompany the meat, I steamed broccoli and made garlic butter smashed sweet potatoes, which were delicious and a great compliment to the steak.
I followed this recipe (also included below) and thought they came out great!
Ingredients
Sweet Potatoes:
  • 4 medium sweet potatoes (or 3 large sweet potatoes)*
  • A light spray of olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • Kosher Salt and Black Pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan Cheese
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat your oven to broil (or grill) settings to high heat. Trim off the ends of the sweet potatoes. Cut each sweet potato into quarters (or 1 1/2 - inch pieces).
Boil Method:
  1. Place sweet potatoes in a large pot of salted water. Bring to the boil; cook, covered for 20 -25 minutes or until just fork-tender. Drain well.
Roast Method:
  1. Bake sweet potato pieces for 25-30 minutes @ 475 degrees, or until they are fork tender. Allow to cool for about 5 minted, or until you can handle them without burning your hands.
Smash:
  1. Lightly grease a large baking sheet or tray with cooking oil spray. Arrange sweet potatoes onto the sheet and use a fork to LIGHTLY flatten each piece (they will be soft, so try not to press too hard or they will end up breaking and mashed).
  2. Mix together the butter, garlic and parsley. Pour the mixture over each sweet potato. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and lightly spray with olive oil spray.
  3. Broil (or grill) until they are golden and crispy (about 15 minutes). Remove from oven, sprinkle over the parmesan cheese and return to the oven until the cheese is melted.
To Serve:
  1. Season with a little extra salt and parsley, and serve immediately.
