These delightful spuds bake up super-crispy thanks to a series of thin slices. Experiment with other herbs and spices, such as caraway seeds and sage


  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • Olive Oil to drizzle
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 10 medium potatoes, scrubbed and patted dry
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt


Step 1

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add thyme, rosemary and garlic.

Step 2

Place a potato on a cutting board and lay 2 chopsticks alongside each of potato’s longer sides.

Step 3

Slice potato into 1/6-inch slices, cutting only 2/3 of the way through (the chopsticks will make sure your knife does not cut all the way through). Repeat with remaining potatoes.

Step 4

Very gently spread the slices of potato apart. Using a small spoon for the herb butter and working over the bowl to catch drips, spoon a very small amount of herb butter between each slice.

Step 5

Place potato on the prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining potatoes.

Step 6

Brush potatoes with any remaining herb butter and sprinkle with salt. Drizzle with extra olive oil.

Step 7

Bake until golden brown and tender, about 50 minutes.
