Where was that potato recipe?

I read in someone's post about a delicious-sounding potato recipe, but now I can't find it. Essentially, you boil small bliss potatoes (I think), then smash them and bake with thyme. Does that sound familiar to anyone?

Thanks in advance!

  1. That is in the Barefoot Contessa "Other Sources" thread, courtesy of Jane EYB on Oct. 5. Happy smashing!

    1. Could be Crash Hot Potatoes from The Pioneer Woman (Ree Drummond).

        That's the recipe I was looking for, but maybe also the other sources thread too since the recipe used thyme not rosemary. Thanks all!

      2. Fine Cooking had one a while ago where you essentially boil the potatoes in chicken broth until all the broth is absorbed, then cook with herbs so the outsides get crusty. Smashed a bit.

        Heaven. The insides are creamy and flavorful and the outsides are crusty.

        1. Cooks Illustrated has a really good sounding recipe in this issue, so I believe it is available on-line for free for a little while. I've made them before, but fried them on the stove. They were great, but really splattered a lot so cleaning up was a bit of a pain. Oven-fried sounds much less messy.

            Doesn't seem to be accessible without a trial or paid membership. Their two TV shows, ATK and CC, provide free online access to the current season's recipes but not CI.

          2. I have a recipe for soft clouds. Potatoes are cooked and mashed and combined with egg, cheddar cheese and butter. Topping is dotted with butter and baked.
