  • 1-2 pounds small potatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme
  1. Boil potatoes until soft (approximately 10 minutes)

  2. Drain potatoes and let cool slightly.

  3. Place potatoes in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Toss potatoes lightly so olive oil covers all areas of potatoes.

  4. 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.

  5. 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. 

Recipe Notes

Plan 3-4 potatoes per person.
