|Layers of onion and potato make a simple hearty side|
2 baking potatoes, washed and sliced thin
2tbs butter, melted
2tbs extra virgin olive oil
sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
1 yellow onion, sliced
1 tsp minced garlic
1. Preheat your oven to 375F. In a saute pan, heat a pat of butter and oil and saute onions and garlic until soft and translucent. Pour at the bottom of a casserole dish.
2. Layer your potatoes, overlapping (see picture above), and in a circular pattern. In a small bowl, combine melted butter and oil. After each layer of potato, use a basting brush to brush the tops of the potatoes with the mixture. Sprinkle with thyme, salt and pepper. Repeat with each layer (I had 2 layers. It's going to depend on how big of a casserole dish you are using).
3. When done, cover the top with foil and bake for 1 hour or until potatoes are very fork-tender. Serve warm, pulling some of the onion from the bottom to the top for serving.
