Have you ever had a smashed potato? It’s crispy on the outside like a fry but soft on the inside like a baked potato, so basically, heaven. Also, is herbed a word? Clearly, I am making it one.

- 2 pounds small red potatoes scrubbed, about 18, keep whole
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 small shallot, diced
- Fresh thyme or rosemary - or both
- 1 tsp salt
- Salt and pepper to taste
Pre-heat over to 450 degrees.
Boil cleaned potatoes in salted water until they are fork tender (30-35mins).
Take potatoes out and let them drain on a clean towel.
Put all the potatoes on a large baking sheet and then place a clean towel over them and smash the potatoes, so they are flat.
Sprinkle shallots, olive oil, salt pepper and herbs to your liking over the potatoes.
Bake for 30-40mins until golden brow and crispy
While the potatoes are baking, prepare the herb salt.
In a mortar and pestle, combine 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of minced herbs of your choice.
Combine well, so the oils from the herbs mix with the salt
When the potatoes are done, sprinkle with the herbed salt and serve!
