Potatoes

Crispy Potato Rounds

If you’ve been reading Simply Sunday’s blog, you must already know that we love potatoes

Could it be the Irish part of us influencing what sides we choose to serve?

Maybe

Or could it be that potatoes are inexpensive, versatile, delicious and loved by most?

Probably

I’m using about 3 pounds of Russett potatoes that I washed and scrubbed clean and 4 tablespoons of salted butter, sliced

Place the butter on a sheet pan  to melt while you preheat the oven to 400 degrees

I want to cook these at a high heat so they cook through and stay crispy

Cut your spuds into rounds about a half an inch thick 

Reserve the rounded ends for another purpose.  I threw them into a small oven proof bowl tossed with olive oil, kosher salt and black pepper and plan to use these for breakfast with eggs

Once the butter in the pan has melted, add in 8-10 sprigs of fresh thyme

Place your potato rounds in a layer over the butter and thyme

 Get them all nestled in there then season generously with kosher salt and black pepper

Put your pan back into the oven and set the timer for 10 min

After 10 minutes, take out and flip each potato in the pan.  Re-season and put back in oven for another 10 – 12 minutes or until you see browned edges

While the potatoes are in the oven, rough chop 3 garlic cloves and warm one cup of stock or broth.  I like to warm the stock so it doesn’t lower the temperature of the potatoes too much

Add in the cup of warmed stock or broth to the pan.  I used my Homemade Beef Stock, but you could also use chicken stock or veggie broth

Sprinkle with the garlic cloves and place back in the oven for an additional 25 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and the potatoes are crispy

The potatoes are crisp, they’ve absorbed delicious flavor from the broth and thyme and are topped with nutty garlic… oh Mama!

  1. This is by FAR the best potato recipe I’ve ever tried! I used baby red potatoes and cut them into quarters and followed the rest of the directions. These came out crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The seasoning was perfect and I loved the addition of the chicken stock. I did use minced garlic instead of the large 3 rough chopped garlic cloves, which I wouldn’t recommend. The garlic did burn. These guys really know their stuff! These are a must try!

  2. Ooh, looks delish! 🌿
