  1. Melt the butter and heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Arrange the potato slices across the bottom of the skillet in a single layer. Cook without stirring for 5 minutes, or until the potatoes have begun to brown on the bottom.
  2. Sprinkle potato slices with rosemary, thyme, oregano, parsley, and paprika. Turn the potatoes, and continue cooking 5 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat, and sprinkle the garlic and cayenne over the potatoes. Lightly toss for about 1 minute, until the garlic has softened.

This was just ok for me. It was hard to follow the directions since my 4 potatoes could not be layered in a single layer in the bottom of even the largest pan I have. I also thought there was too much herbs for the amount of potatoes. Mine were covered and you could barely taste the potato. I would use less spices next time.

These potatoes turned out really well, I did cut back on the fresh herbs and used a little white pepper.

I left the skin on my potato, and just used one large one (i didn't want more than one layer of potatoes in the bottom). My husband loved these.

This recipe is fantastic! I absolutely loved it. Wish I would have cooked up some more! :) The only thing I didn't follow was peeling the potatoes. They were so thinly sliced though, I don't think it made a difference whatsoever! I will definitely be making this recipe again and again...and soon!

These were so yummy, but I made them with only thyme and garlic, and a little red pepper sprinkled on top. The list of ingredients seems like herb overkill. I also used unpeeled red potatoes, which I think are way better, plus the skin is good for you. It's unnecessary to "lay the slices across the bottom of the skillet in a single layer," that takes forever and you'll probably need multiple skillets if you're cooking for a bunch of people. Just dump a reasonable amount of slices in, spread them out as much as possible, stir and make sure they're all coated with the melted butter/oil, maybe add a small dollop of butter to the top and then simply cover the skillet. Turn them every once in a while til they're done, works for me every time.
