I call these "Awful, Awful potatoes" because they are "Awful" easy to make and "Awful" good to eat. This dish goes well with beef, pork, lamb or chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut peeled potatoes in 1/4-inch slices and arrange in 9x13 baking dish.
  2. In a safe container, microwave butter, oil, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper for 15-20 seconds or until the butter is melted.
  3. Stir mixture and pour evenly over the potato slices.
  4. Bake in a 400°F degrees oven for 25-30 minutes or until brown around the edges.

I thought these would be very good but I'm sorry to say they were not. Way, way to much oil and they were not seasoned enough. I may try the method again but not this recipe. Sorry

These were very tastey, but we found them much too oily, if I do them again, I would use a quarter of the oil,(I spread them on paper towel), but you are right they are very awful to have to often, we will keep them as a treat. Thanks Dorothy
