Potatoes: Floury potatoes are best for this recipe. Use potatoes that you would normally use to make french fries or roasted potatoes, like Desiree, Maris Piper or King Edward.
Vegetable stock: Use any stock or broth. I like vegetable stock, but chicken stock or beef stock also works well, particularly if you're serving the potatoes with chicken or beef.
Shallots: Shallots are small, mild onions. You can also use a regular onion.
This simple dish can be made with only a few steps.
The key part to this recipe is to peel the potatoes, and slice them into very thin slices. You can use a sharp knife, but you might find that slicing them with a vegetable peel or food processor is much easier.
Bake the boulangere potatoes in the oven at 400 F or 200 C for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Use a fork to make sure that the top potatoes are crispy, and the bottom potatoes are soft and cooked through.
- If you don't have fresh thyme, you can use dried thyme or any other herb that you like.
- Make sure to slice the potatoes very thinly for a good result.
- The exact cooking time will vary depending on how thick the potato slices are. Make sure to keep an eye on them.
This easy potato recipe is the perfect healthy side dish that pairs with any entree. Boulangere potatoes are particularly great for a traditional steak dinner, or a Sunday roast. Here are some of my favorite dishes to serve it with:
- Beef: Roast Topside of Beef, Air Fryer Steak
- Chicken: Bacon Wrapped Chicken Thighs, Honey Glazed Roast Chicken, Honey Mustard Chicken Breasts
- Pork: Instant Pot Pork Roast, Air Fryer Pork Roast, Air Fryer Pork Tenderloin
Cheesy boulangere potatoes: To make the dish cheesy, you can top the potatoes with shredded cheese for the last 15 or 20 minutes of the cooking time.
Mixed vegetables: Layer the sliced potatoes with other sliced root vegetables, like beetroot, parsnips, swede, turnip, sweet potatoes or carrots. This will make the dish a lot more flavorful and colorful, and is an easy way to add more vegetables to your meal.
Store leftover boulangere potatoes in a sealed container in a refrigerator for up to 4 days.
You can reheat the potatoes in a microwave or oven and serve them warm. Alternatively, repurpose them in a different dish like soups, casseroles and more.
