Roasted Smash Potatoes

Recipe from Ashley Kane


1lb baby potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
2 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
1 tbsp sea salt
3-4 thyme or rosemary stems


Preheat oven to 375º. Add water and a generous amount of salt to a pot and bring to a boil. Add in potatoes and cook for 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes and dry them off. Mix together the olive oil, sea salt, and finely chopped garlic and place potatoes in the bowl until they are evenly coated. Set potatoes on a baking sheet an inch or two apart from one another. Cook for 35-40 minutes and be sure to check every 15 min or so and rotate them. Take them out and lightly smash each potato by pressing down with a fork. Drizzle the rest of the olive oil from the mixing bowl, add herb stems throughout the pan, and place them back in the oven for 10 minutes to absorb more flavor.
