Baby Baked Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chives

From: Take Home Chef

5 ounces rock salt
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 sprigs fresh thyme
3 garlic cloves, crushed
12 small red-skinned potatoes
12 teaspoons sour cream
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives

Preheat the oven to 375°F/200°C. Mix the salt, thyme and garlic in a small bowl. Sprinkle the salt mixture into a roasting pan. Place the potatoes on top of the salt mixture. Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are fully cooked and soft. Remove the potatoes from the oven and allow to cool. Brush any excess salt mixture from the potatoes and cut a small cross into the top of each potato. Using both thumbs and index fingers, squeeze the potatoes to open the top of each potato. Spoon a teaspoon/about 5 g of sour cream onto each potato. Sprinkle with chives and serve.
