Tasty Tuesday: Crunchy Thyme Potatoes

This simple and fast dish is one that we absolutely love, especially with meat loaf. Reminiscent of home fries, I think Crunchy Thyme Potatoes are even yummier. I got the basic recipe from a church cookbook I have and then combined several other recipes and my own ideas to create this recipe.

Crunchy Thyme Potatoes
4 large baking potatoes
1/3 c. butter
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 to 1 tsp. salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 c. dry bread crumbs

Melt butter in a jelly roll pan in a 375 degree oven.
Add a single layer of potatoes cut lengthwise into 1/4 inch thick slices; turn once in butter.
Mix remaining ingredients and sprinkle over top of potatoes.
Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until done.

* For variation you can also sprinkle with Parmesan cheese or shredded cheese. This is a very versatile recipe and I have tried different combinations of seasonings and we have enjoyed many variations.


  1. I am so all about this recipe. I have some thyme just waiting to be picked. It's going toward some potatoes. :)

  2. I'd love to hear what you think of this dish after you make it. I've never tried it with fresh thyme but would love to. Bet it's even better than normal.

  3. I just made these with zucchini. Super good!

  4. I never would have thought of trying that...great idea. Now I just wish I had zucchini to try it with! Thanks for letting me know.


I love your feel free to leave them!
