Crispy Roasted Potatos

I've been searching for a while for a potato recipe that is easy, crispy, and doesn't require deep frying.  Finally, I've found it.

Yield: 6 servings


  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • 4 lbs. potatoes
  • 1 shallot, sliced
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Thyme


  1. Combine the butter and oil.  Brush onto a 12" cast iron skillet.  Set the remaining aside.
  2. Peel the potatoes and slice.  If using a mandolin, set it for 3/8".
  3. Arrange the slices vertically in the cast iron skillet as shown in the picture.  Randomly insert shallot slices between potato slices.  Brush with the remaining butter/oil mixture.
  4. Bake at 375°F for 75 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and thyme to taste.  Return to the oven and bake for 35 minutes.
  6. If desired, broil on high for 3-4 minutes to further crisp up the potatoes.
  7. Serve hot.
