Crispy Spicy Smashed Potatoes#BakingBloggers

These guys are super crunchy on the outside, light and fluffy in the middle, and are so flavorful with the combo of spices and hot sauce. 
Once you start eating these potatoes, you'll never be able to stop at one.

1 Kg Small Potatoes or Baby Potatoes - I used red and white
1 Tablespoon + 2 Teaspoons Salt
4 Tablespoons Olive oil
4 Tablespoon Hot sauce
2 Teaspoons Smoked Paprika
2 Teaspoons Garlic powder
2 Teaspoons Fresh Thyme leaves
Black pepper to taste
Chopped fresh coriander
Wash and scrub the potatoes well.
Bring a large pot of water to the boil and season with a tablespoon of salt. Add in potatoes and cook for until fork tender. Allow to slightly cool.
In the meantime preheat oven to 200°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Onto the prepared baking tray, drizzle evenly half the olive oil, hot sauce, smoked paprika, garlic powder, thyme, a teaspoon salt, black pepper, thyme & coriander leaves . 
Arrange potatoes on baking tray, and use a potato masher/bottom of a glass to gently crush the potatoes. 
Season the tops of the crushed potatoes with remaining olive oil, hot sauce, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt & pepper.
Sprinkle thyme and coriander leaves. 
Place in preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes. 
Remove from oven, and flip over each potato. Return to oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes. 
Garnish with fresh chopped coriander before serving.
