Pommes De Terre a la Boulangere: Potatoes a la Bakery
Recipe courtesy Laura Calder
Prep Time:15 minInactive Prep Time:–Cook Time:3 hr 0 min
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 onions, sliced
2 pounds potatoes, thinly sliced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Fresh thyme sprigs, leaves picked
2 cups beef stock
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
Melt half the butter with the olive oil in a saute pan, and gently fry the onions until soft and lightly golden, about 15 minutes. Spread half the onions in the bottom of a casserole. Lay a layer of sliced potatoes on top, season with salt and pepper, and scatter with thyme leaves. Build another layer of onions, then a final one of potatoes, and finally pour over the stock. Cover the pan with foil, and bake until all the liquid has been absorbed, 2 to 3 hours, removing the foil for the last hour if you like a crisp top.
