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. I think you'll enjoy it!

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. In fact, I know of someone who did this with zucchini!

  2. I make roasted potatoes all the time, but I like your addition of bread crumbs to give them crunch! Joni
