Ingredients

2 pounds baby yellow potatoes

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 cloves garlic (minced)

1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.

Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold salted water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and simmer until just tender, about 15 minutes; drain well and let cool slightly.

Place potatoes onto the prepared baking sheet. Using a flat dry measuring cup or glass, carefully smash the potatoes until flattened but still in one piece. Top with olive oil, garlic and thyme.

Place into oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.

Serve immediately.
