I sure learned a few things with this recipe...one re-read the directions...I forgot the baking paper...but no sweat...they didn't stick...I used too large of a potato...so I had to use my mallet to smash them...that worked...they came out so deliciously brown and tasty...I did add a touch of salt...made of "Bill Board" tag game...

This dish gave to my whole apartment such a tempting smell! I love the thyme addition! I used the herbs from my garden and potatoes I have at home (yellow and one purple potatoes), they where great and taste but did not turn to mashed potatoes (this depends on the quality of the potatoes). I prepared as suggested (halved and with skin), placed them cut slice done on the plate and then tossed with the additions. Finally I placed them in the oven again (cut side up) until the borders were lightly browned. I'm super happy with the results, I will prepare these in the same way again and I highly recommend this preparation. No matter did not turn out as mashed potatoes, they were perfect in any case and I did not miss anything. Thanks a lot for dish super flavorful dish and making us so happy!
