This is an attractive dish and takes far less time than baking the potatoes whole. I used Herbs de Provencale, but a wide variety of other green leafed herbs or herb mixtures would be good too. You may cut the potatoes with a mandolin if you like. My great aunt gave me an orange plastic mandolin once saying she did not like using it. Well that turned out to be an understatement. I nearly lost a finger using that mandolin. It would have been unkind to pass it on to someone else so I just threw it in the trash. I can slice thinner with a chef’s knife anyway.

4 medium sized red potatoes
1/2 onion
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp butter
salt to taste
1 garlic clove, minced
1 Tbsp fine Herbs de Provencale

• Preheat oven to 375F.
• Scrub and dry the potatoes.
• Slice potatoes as thinly as possible.
• Thinly slice the onion.
• In a small saucepan, melt the butter in olive oil.
• Remove saucepan from heat.
• Add salt to taste.
• Stir in the minced garlic and the Herbs de Provencale.
• Brush the baking dish with this butter mixture.
• Arrange the sliced potatoes upright in the dish.
• Insert slices of onions between the potatoes.
• Pour the remaining butter mixture over the potatoes.
• Bake potatoes at 375 F for 1 hour or until they are golden brown and crispy.


  1. randomly chanced upon your blog, and am loving this way of doing baked potatoes! definitely cooks a lot faster than a usual baked potato and even better that it looks really stunning and unique like that.

  2. I checked out your blog Shu Han and I was quite impressed.
    Thanks for the comment it’s nice to meat a fellow food obsessive blogger. I agree about the potatoes. Food should never be boring or tasteless.

  3. Zsuzsa, I love your beautiful potato dish! I have already noticed this red skinned potatoes on many US and Canadian blogs, but believe me or not, I have spotted them here yesterday for the first time in my life. I have bought four and am looking forward to see how they taste!
    What a nice surprise to see Shu Han here!)

  4. I love new vegetable dishes. I keep taking cookbooks out of the library looking for new ones. Depending what you do with it something humdrum can be amazing. You will like it Sissi. :)
