Scrub the red potatoes and lay on a baking sheet. Add c. of water to the potatoes and cover with foil. Bake in hot oven for 30 minutes. When done, remove foil, drain, and let cool for 10 minutes. Toss potatoes with 3 Tbsp. olive oil, making sure each is covered with oil. Take the bottom of a cup and "smash" each potato to about ⅓" - " thick. Drizzle another 3 Tbsp. olive oil on the potatoes, sprinkle with thyme leaves, and salt and pepper. Place potatoes back in the 500 oven and bake for another 10 minutes. If needed, move to lower oven rack and continue to bake for another 20 to 25 minutes (until nice and brown). The potatoes come out crispy on the outside and soft and tender in the center. So good!
