Prep time: 5 min

Cook time: 1 hr

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Level: Easy


1 1/2 pounds fingerling potatoes

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup kosher salt

5 to 6 turns fresh ground black pepper

4 cloves garlic, unpeeled

2 sprigs fresh thyme

2 bay leaves


In a heavy-bottomed, wide saute pan over high heat, add the potatoes and just barely cover with cold water. Add the olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, thyme and bay leaves. Bring to a boil and then simmer uncovered until just tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Lower the heat and continue to cook, keeping a watchful eye, so the water evaporates completely and the potatoes are left covered in salt, about 30 minutes. Once the water has evaporated, cook for 3 to 4 minutes, lightly tossing; the oil left in the pan will help prevent the potatoes from sticking. Remove the potatoes from the pan, discard the herbs and garlic and serve.
