Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Boiled potatoes, brushed with garlic butter and baked until crispy!



•3 pounds mini yellow potatoes

•2 tablespoons butter

•2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

•3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

•1 tablespoon thyme, chopped

•1 tablespoon chives, chopped

•Salt and pepper to taste


1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Place potatoes in a medium-sized pot with cold water. Bring to a boil and cook until fork-tender, about 8-10 minutes.

Drain and turn potatoes out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Using a rock, glass or mug, press down firmly onto each potato to flatten.

2. Melt butter in a small saucepan, add oil and garlic. Swirl the garlic around in the pan for a few seconds. Brush the potatoes with the melted butter mixture, season with salt and transfer to the oven to bake for 20 minutes or until crispy and golden. Transfer potatoes to a service piece and garnish with chopped herbs, salt and pepper right before you serve.
