Serves: 4 

  • 700g potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 25g butter
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • sprigs of fresh thyme to garnish

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C (gas 6). Mix the potatoes with the garlic and thyme, season with salt and pepper, then spread evenly in a 1 litre greased baking dish (or four individual ovenproof dishes).
  2. Pour over the stock and dot with knobs of butter. Put in the oven and bake for 45 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and golden on top. Serve hot, garnished with sprigs of fresh thyme.


The quickest way to slice potatoes thinly is using the slicing disc on a food processor, if you have one. Alternatively, use the smooth cross blade on a box grater. * Charlotte or Pink Fir Apple are good potato varieties for this dish as they have firm flesh and hold their shape well when cooked. * Serve with grilled meat, fish or a casserole.
