Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs Russet Potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 small yellow onions - thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp garlic - minced
  • 6 Tbsp butter - divided
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Parsley - finely minced
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Peel the potatoes and cut into ¼ inch slices.
  • Place the potatoes in a pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Allow the potatoes to boil for 5 minutes then drain and set aside.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add in the olive oil. Once hot, add in the onions and sauté until lightly caramelized. Then, add in the garlic and sauté until the garlic has softened.
  • Melt 3 Tablespoons of the butter in a bowl in the microwave and add it to the bottom of a square baking dish (8X8 or 9X9).
  • Next, layer ⅓ of the potatoes on the bottom of the pan on top of the butter and season with salt and pepper. Then, add about ½ of the onions on top of this first potato layer.
  • After that, add another ⅓ of potatoes on top of the onions and season with salt and pepper then add the second half of onions to the dish.
  • Next, add the last ⅓ of potatoes to the top of the dish and season with salt and pepper. Then melt the remaining 3 Tablespoons of butter and drizzle over the top of the dish.
  • Then, bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until potatoes are ever so slightly brown and cooked until they are tender.
  • Finally, sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve and enjoy!
