3 medium potatoes
3 tbsp olive oil
Couple sprigs of thyme
Peel and halve your potatoes. Top and tail them, making a flat surface that allows them to stand upright. As much as possible try and make them the same size and depth.
Heat the oil and butter gently and add the potatoes. Allow to brown slowly on all sides, don’t let the butter burn. Baste regularly, they should take 20-30mins or so. For the last 10 mins of cooking throw in the thyme sprigs.
