  • Preheat oven to 220°C Brush a round 18cm (base measurement) cake pan with melted butter to lightly grease. Place the potato slices in a large bowl. Add the melted butter and gently toss until potato slices are well coated. Arrange one-third of the potato slices over the base of the prepared pan.
  • Combine parmesan and thyme in a bowl. Sprinkle potato slices with one-third of the parmesan mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Continue layering with the remaining potato slices, parmesan mixture and salt and pepper, finishing with a layer of parmesan mixture.
  • Bake in preheated oven, pressing the potato down with the back of a large spoon a couple of times during cooking, for 1 hour or until tender and golden. Remove from oven and set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Turn onto a serving plate. Cut into wedges and serve with mixed salad leaves.

  1. *Fantastic potatoes* & so easy to fix! I doubled the recipe, made them Fri to serve as a side dish for a dinner party Sat nite & they rewarmed well in the microwave. I added garlic (a pers pref must for me) & chives + parsley mostly as color variants. All Icelanders revere the potato, my guests loved this dish & the ladies asked for the recipe. Thx for sharing this unanimous 5* recipe w/us. :-)
  2. Quite simply perfect, the quantity was reduced by half - except for the parmesan which I am addicted to. A perfect alternative to roasties or potato wedges (both of which I make a lot) and also excellent for dinner parties. Gorgeous. Thank you


I live in Keilor Downs, Victoria in Australia. I am a receptionist in Melbourne. My favorite cook books are anything Weight Watchers or Simply 2 good 2 be true also any muffin or scone cook books. I love cooking easy stuff but I love a challange ocasionaly on the weekends when i have a bit more time. My pet peeve is how much capsicum/bell peppers are in recipes now as i am elergic to them.
