Preparation

Boil potatoes in a pot of water until fork-tender, and drain. Return potatoes to the pot, and dry over low heat for a couple of minutes.  Season with salt and pepper; and mash the potatoes, then cool to room temperature.

In a small non-stick skillet, add the butter. Add the smashed potatoes. Cook over medium-high heat until a crust forms on the bottom, about 5 to 10 minutes.  Flip the potatoes in a pan and cook the other side until a crust forms. Plate the potatoes; serve with sour cream and olive tapenade.
