This Thyme Pommes Anna is hands down my most favorite potato side dish. My grandma used to make this all the time and I would get so excited every time she did! I mean, what is better than potatoes layered in butter. And I am determined that thyme is the best herb to go with potatoes. Every time I can, I am putting thyme on my potatoes. Guys, thyme + potatoes is like peanut butter + jelly. It’s just meant to be. Next time you are craving a side of potatoes, please, please make these ones.
- 3-4 large russet potatoes
- 4 tbsp butter - melted
- Salt for sprinkling
- Pepper for sprinkling
- 4-5 fresh sprigs of thyme
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Peel and slice potatoes about ¼ inch thick
- In a greased cast iron skillet, lay one layer of potatoes on the bottom of the pan.
- Spoon some butter over the potatoes and sprinkle with salt, pepper and thyme.
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 until all the potatoes have been used.
- Cover the pan with a lid and bake for 30 minutes, remove the lid and bake 30 minutes more until potatoes are soft and are starting to brown.
- Carefully flip out the potatoes by placing a plate over the pan and flipping both the plate and pan over together. Or, you can just serve the potatoes out of the pan if you prefer ;)
