Author Notes: This is an awesome dish to pair with roasted or braised meats. Creamy, cheesy, herbaceous potatoes… you just can’t go wrong. —Mas Appetit
Serves: 4 - 6
Prep time: 1 hrs
Cook time: 1 hrs 15 min
pounds Idaho or Russet potatoes; peeled & thinly sliced
sprig fresh sage leaves
garlic cloves; grated
Kosher sea salt
fresh ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil
ounces organic chicken stock
cup Parmesan cheese; freshly grated
tablespoons unsalted butter
black truffle salt
sprigs fresh thyme
- The Onions - sauté onions and grated garlic in skillet over medium heat, with a pat of butter and a drizzle of olive oil. Once onions are sweated (7-10 minutes), remove for heat and transfer to a bowl.
- The Potatoes - preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease ovenproof casserole dish with butter or non-stick spray. Arrange a layer of sliced potatoes over the base, then a layer of the sautéed onions, with a light sprinkling of thyme leaves (no stems), parmesan cheese, and a tiny dash of salt and pepper. Continue this layering pattern until the casserole dish is topped off. Gently pour the stock over the potatoes. Season the top layer with a little salt and pepper, then scatter the whole sage leaves and the rest of the parmesan cheese.
- Disperse little pats of the butter all over the potatoes, then place the dish on the top third of the oven, and cook for 60-90 minutes, until the top golden crisp and the potatoes are cooked all the way through. Finish with a little black truffle salt if you happen to have some.
