  • 1.3 kg maris piper potatoes
  • 1 handful fresh thyme
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • To a pestle and mortar add the fresh thyme (pull the leaves away from the stalks) crushed garlic clove, 3 tbsp olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper and mix
  • Slice downwards on the potatoes, I use chopsticks or wooden spoons laid down this helps create and even depth and stops you slicing all the way through the potato
  • Place the potatoes in the oven dish, then evenly spread the thyme oil over, making sure it gets deep inside the potatoes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and place in the oven for 45 minutes at 200C
