Ingredients - potatoes anna
chopped fresh garlic to taste
6 medium russet potatoes (2 3/4 pounds total), peeled
6 tablespoons butter, melted
6 tablespoons fresh chopped thyme
Coarse salt and ground pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Using a food processor with a slicing blade or a sharp knife, slice potatoes as thinly as possible, 1/4 inch thick or thinner. (Do not place sliced potatoes in water; the starch is needed to bind the layers.).
Brush bottom of a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with 1 1/2 tablespoons butter. Starting in center of pan, arrange potato slices, slightly overlapping, in circular pattern, covering surface. Brush with another 1 1/2 tablespoons butter and garlic on each level.
Season well with salt and pepper. Repeat for two more layers.
Place over high heat until butter in pan sizzles, 2 to 4 minutes.
Transfer to oven; bake until potatoes are fork-tender, about 1 hour. Remove from oven
Allow to rest a few minutes, slice and enjoy!
