  • Prep

  • Cook

  1. Begin by bringing a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in as many potatoes as you wish to make, and cook them until they’re fork-tender.
  2. Next, generously drizzle olive oil on a sheet pan, this will mean the difference between the potatoes sticking and not sticking, so don’t be shy here.
  3. When the potatoes are tender, place them on the cookie sheet giving them plenty of room to spread out.
  4. Next, grab your potato masher and gently press down on the potato until it slightly mashes.
  5. Then rotate the masher 90 degrees and finish flattening it. Of course, you don’t want to absolutely smash it into the pan—you want it almost to resemble a cookie.
  6. Repeat until all are flattened.
  7. Next, brush the tops rather generously with olive oil.
  8. Put some salt, pepper and thyme on every potatoe.
  9. Now throw them onto the top rack of a very hot (220 degree Celcius/450 degree) oven, and cook them for 20-25 minutes, or until they’re golden and crispy and sizzling.

Great recipe for a potato side! Fork-pierce or cut, a small x in the top before crushing to guide the masher into the center of the potato. Everyone really enjoyed these!
