Smashed potatoes baked with garlic, olive oil and herbs.  Fluffy in the middle and crispy on the outside!

2 lbs. baby potatoes
3 Tbsp. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, crushed
Fresh thyme
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Bring a large pot of water to boil, then add the potatoes and cook until just cooked but not super soft (15-25 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes).  While the potatoes are cooking, mix the oil and garlic together.  Once the potatoes are cooked, drain and place on a baking sheet.  Using a potato masher or a fork, “smash” the top of the potatoes. Evenly drizzle the olive oil mixture (or use a silicone brush) on top of the potatoes, then season with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle on fresh thyme leaves and place in the hot oven.  Bake for about 20-35 minutes, or until the top of the potatoes are good and crispy.

Untill Next Time

Happy gardening
