2 pounds Yukon gold new potatoes
3 Tbsp butter and 5 Tbsp olive oil
salt (I didn't use the salt)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut across each potato at about 1/4-inch intervals, being careful not to cut all the way through. When you've cut them all, place them in a shallow baking plan on the stove with the butter and oil and heat up till sizzling. Turn the potatoes well, putting them in upside down first, then right side up, and spoon the fat over them. Sprinkle each potato well with salt and thyme and put in the oven. Bake for about 40 minutes or until tender, rotating them in the pans, to insure even browning.
