Potato Roast

Potato Roast

By April 25, 2011

This recipe is a KEEPER so yummy, pretty and easy. This would be GREAT for company put it in the oven and forget about it for 2 hours and it is pretty and stays warm for a while once out of the oven.

Served tonight with baked fish that my son caught last week with Grandpa

  • Prep Time : 15 minutes
  • Cook Time : 1h 45 min



  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine butter and oil. With a sharp knife or manoline, slice potatoes crosswise very thinly. Figure out what baking dish you’d like to use a deep dish pie pan would fit this recipe well.
  • Once you’ve picked the dish that works for your  slices, pour a tablespoon or so of the butter/oil mixture in the bottom and spread it evenly. Sprinkle the oil mixture with a few pinches of coarse salt and red pepper flakes, if using; this will allow you to season both the top and underside of the potatoes. Arrange your potato slices vertically in the dish.
  • Thinly slice shallots with your mandoline and slide shallot slivers between potato wedges, distributing them as evenly as possible. Brush with remaining oil/butter mixture. Generously season your dish with salt; go easier on the red pepper flakes, if using. Bake 1 1/4 hours, then arrange thyme sprigs on top and bake until potatoes are cooked through with a crisped top, about 35 minutes more. If casserole seems to brown too fast, cover it with foil to slow it down. Add any garnishes, if using, and serve immediately.
