  • 1-2 pounds small potatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme


  • Boil potatoes until soft (approximately 10 minutes)
  • Drain potatoes and let cool slightly.
  • Place potatoes in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Toss potatoes lightly so olive oil covers all areas of potatoes.
  • Grease a baking sheet with a small amount of olive oil. Place potatoes on tray. Gently smash each potato with a flat surface (I used the bottom of a glass.) Sprinkle with sea salt and fresh thyme.
  • Bake in a 450 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until the edges are crispy. Cooking times my vary depending on the size of your potatoes and how flat you smashed them. 


Plan 3-4 potatoes per person.
