Holy Cow….this potato recipe is really good. My favorite potato recipes right now are this one, Roasted Greek Potatoes and Crash Hot Potatoes. This is the second time I have made these. The first time Mark and I made our New Years Eve dinner together instead of going out and then last night. Grace would have eaten the whole pan if I would have let her. There was not much left and I ate the rest for lunch Sorry Grace.
I found the recipe on Pinterest. If you have not been to the pinterest site….you need too! If you need an invite, just let me know and I will invite you. I followed the recipe from Hizzoners website. I really did not change a thing, which is rare. It looks harder than it really is. So simple. The hardest part is finding Gruyere locally
- 2 1/2 tablespoons butter
- 12 sprigs thyme, strip the leaves from the stems
- 1 large onion, sliced somewhat thickly ( a tad more than 1/4 inch thick)
- 1 lb. small red potatoes, washed and very thinly sliced ( I may have used a bit more than 1 lb. What you see in the photo is what I used.)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 cup grated Gruyere
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta
- 1 cup grated mozzarella
- sea salt and cracked black pepper
Preheat oven to 400°. Melt the butter in a 9-10 inch ovenproof frying pan (cast iron is great) over medium heat. Add the thyme and onion and cook for 5 minutes. Place the potato, oil, cheeses, salt and pepper in a bowl and toss to combine.
Top the onion with the potato mixture and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Turn upside down to serve.
Oh, how I love crunchy things. Like I said I have made this twice and LOVED it both times. Both times, it looks a little brown after turning over….but it is still sooo good. I have a hot oven. I did not try to make it until it looks like the original recipe’s photo and deprive you of this recipe. So with that said…here is my photo.
Oh, how I LOVE crispy potatoes!
I am heading to FL on Thursday to see my daughter, Samantha. I am so excited to see her and be in the warmth and sunshine.
