Roasted Potatoes


  • 1 1/2 pounds (about 3) baking potatoes, scrubbed and sliced into 1/4-inch thick rounds
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons thyme leaves


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, toss together the potatoes, olive oil, salt and thyme. Spread onto a baking sheet in 1 layer. Roast until golden brown and tender, about 45 minutes, shaking the pan every 1 15 minutes or so.
