Crispy Roasted Potatoes with Thyme
Who would have thought that just four simple ingredients could produce a dish with such amazing flavor? Crispy, buttery and aromatic with fresh thyme, these potatoes are the perfect partner for everything from the holiday turkey to grilled meats and roasted fish.
- 4 lb. (2 kg) Yukon Gold potatoes
- 8 Tbs. (1 stick) (4 oz./125 g) unsalted butter, melted
- 1 Tbs. chopped fresh thyme
- 1 Tbs. kosher salt
Preheat an oven to 375°F (190°C).
Using a sharp knife or a mandoline, thinly slice the potatoes.
Brush the bottom of an 8-by-8-inch (20-by-20-cm) baking dish with 2 Tbs. of the melted butter. Arrange the potato slices vertically but at a slight angle in a circular pattern in the dish, filling it completely. Pour the remaining 6 Tbs. (3 fl. oz./90 ml) melted butter over the potatoes and sprinkle with the thyme and salt.
Roast until the top edges of the potatoes are crispy, about 1 hour. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Serves 6 to 8.
