Recipe for easy and crispy thyme potatoes. They are the most delicious oven baked potatoes and you can count the ingredients on one hand. They make for a wonderful side to things like steak, tenderloin, salmon, meatballs, and much more. Who doesn’t love a delicious side that only takes 10 minutes to prep?



14.11 oz (400 g) potatoes

1.5 teaspoon dried thyme

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

salt and pepper



  1. Preheat oven to 390 F (200 C)
  2. Clean potatoes and dry them thoroughly.
  3. Grab your favorite KUMA kitchen knife and slice potatoes into wedges, or simply just cut them in halves if they are small potatoes.
  4. Place potatoes in an ovensafe casserole.
  5. Drizzle oil, thyme, salt and a little pepper over all potatoes. Then turn the potatoes and move them around a bit to make sure they’re all covered with oil.
  6. First bake potatoes in the middle of the oven for 20 minutes. Then remove from oven and stir them around. The idea is to ensure they get baked somewhat evenly all over.
  7. Bake them for another 20-25 minutes depending on how powerful your oven is.
  8. When all potatoes have gotten a nice color and are a bit crispy, remove them from the oven.
  9. Serve immediately and enjoy.

They are amazing as a side dish for things like beef or pork tenderloin, grilled salmon, chicken, BBQ etc. They are so versatile and really go great with many different main courses. 

You can decide if you want to use fresh or dried thyme. We don’t find it makes a big difference so we often choose dried thyme as it is cheaper.

Potatoes in the oven

Potatoes in the oven is such an easy way to prepare potatoes. They get crispy and you can season with anything you like. Just add a little oil so the seasoning will stick (and the oil also helps getting them nice and crispy). Herbs like oregano and rosemary also go great on these potatoes but we most often find outselves using thyme as it just goes great with so many different recipes.
