  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. In a large pot of boiling water, cook potatoes until tender and can be pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes.
  3. Once potatoes are done cooking, strain well and place them on a baking sheet.
  4. Using the back of a fork or a potato masher, carefully ‘smash’ the potatoes until flattened.
  5. Top each potato with a drizzle of olive oil, sea salt and thyme.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.
  7. Serve warm and enjoy!
