Step 1

Start out with a cast iron pan, or other such pan that can withstand the oven. Cast iron is definitely best suited for this recipe though.

Melt butter. LOTS of butter, in your frying pad and throw in some crushed garlic.While your butter is melting, wash and slice up some potatoes. If you’re a family of 4 or 5, I’d do about 6 large potatoes and that should be enough. Six potatoes also fits in a large cast iron pan pretty well.

Once your butter is nicely melted, layer in the potato slices in a circular pattern. Add some pieces of butter on top, then fry on the stove top for a while, until you feel the bottom of your potatoes have started to brown a bit,and the butter on top has melted.

Place your frying pan into the oven, uncovered, at a good temperature. I put mine at 375.

Once your potatoes start looking nice and golden brown on top and well cooked, you’re done.Place a large plate over top of your frying pan, and flip the frying pan over to reveal the potatoes at the bottom. Be careful! The butter tends to leak out the sides while you flip, so I do this over the sink, carefully, with two good pot holders to make sure I don’t burn myself in the process.

This is a recipe you can play around with too. Add some seasoning salt, or any other such spices that you like on your potatoes. Chives would be good also.
