A small amount of truffle oil infuses the whole dish with loads of earthy essence. If you don't have truffle oil, you can use olive oil for a more subtle flavor. Use a mandoline for quick, easy, uniform potato slices.
2 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, divided
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 1/2 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices
2 1/2 teaspoons white truffle oil, divided
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 450°.
Combine 2 teaspoons thyme and kosher salt in a small bowl.
Drizzle butter into a 10-inch cast-iron skillet coated with cooking spray. Arrange a layer of slightly overlapping potato slices in a circular pattern in pan; sprinkle with about 1/2 teaspoon salt mixture and drizzle with 1/2 teaspoon truffle oil. Repeat layers 4 times, ending with truffle oil. Press potato mixture firmly to pack. Cook over medium-high heat for 6 minutes without stirring.
Cover with foil, and bake at 450° for 20 minutes on bottom rack in oven.
Uncover and bake an additional 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife. Loosen edges of potatoes with a spatula or knife. Place a plate upside down on top of pan; invert potatoes onto plate. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon thyme.
Decided to use the olive oil instead and it did give the dish a light flavor coupled with the fresh thyme. Potatoes inverted perfectly onto plate, no sticking and it held beautifully. I cooked on the stovetop as directed, but either during this process or while in the oven the potatoes browned too much. Maybe it only needed five minutes on the stovetop.
