DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Combine salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Melt 2 1/2 T butter in a 10-inch cast iron or ovenproof heavy skillet over medium heat.
  • (I've found pan size is important here. Otherwise adjust quantities and cooking times.) Arrange a single layer of potato slices, slightly overlapping, in a circular pattern in pan, sprinkle with 1/4 tsp salt mixture.
  • Drizzle 1/2 tsp melted butter over potatoes.
  • Repeat layers 5 times, ending with butter; press firmly to pack.
  • (I press firmly to pack before adding the last of the butter.) Cover and bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes.
  • Uncover and bake an additional 25 minutes or until potatoes are golden.
  • Loosen edges of potatoes with a spatula.
  • Place a plate upside down on top of pan, invert potatoes onto plate.
  • Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
