These crispy little gems are the perfect side to so many dinners. Once you make them, they will be a go to side for life.


To make these smashed crispy potatoes start with preheating your oven to 420° F. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt generously and add the potatoes in whole. Cook for 20 minutes, try not to poke them to many times as this will make them absorb more water and take longer to crisp in the oven later. After they are cooked, drain well and make sure they are completely dry. Line a large baking sheet with cooking paper, using a fork, squish the potatoes almost flat. Don’t worry if they split unevenly, this is what gives you the crispy bits. Pour over the olive oil and then dot each potato with butter. Season well with salt and pepper and top with a big pinch of thyme. Cook for 30-35 minutes or until crispy and golden. Enjoy!

    This sounds so good, I have to buy some thyme to try.
