Roast Potatoes with Lemons

1 1/2 lbs fingerling or small Yukon Gold potatoes
1 lemon
2 garlic cloves (minced)
3 Tbsp fresh thyme
1/4 cup olive oil
3/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 450 .  Scrub potatoes and dry with a paper towel.  Cut in half lengthwise; place in a bowl.

Cut lemon into quarters lengthwise, removing any seeds.  Cut each quarter in half crosswise, then squeeze juice onto potatoes.  Add juiced pieces to bowl.  Add garlic, thyme, olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Toss thoroughly.

Spread mixture over bottom of a large roasting pan.  Place in oven and roast about 30 minutes, turning potatoes from time to time so they are evenly browned.
