Smashed Baked Potatoes

I've seen this recipe a few time and decided to give it a go.
Yum! Just yum! I'll be making these again.
I might substitute the oil with butter.
I cooked the potatoes well in advance and cooked them at the same time as a de-boned roast chicken.

Smashed Potatoes
4-6 Potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed (or more if you want them really garlicky)
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
  • In a large pot of boiling water, cook potatoes until tender, about 15-20 minutes; drain well.
  • Place potatoes onto the prepared baking sheet. Using a potato masher or fork, carefully smash the potatoes until flattened but still in one piece. Top with olive oil, garlic and thyme.
  • Place into oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
  • Serve immediately.
