Ingredients
  • 2 medium Idaho potatoes, washed, skin on, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • Gray salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 4 garlic cloves
Directions
  • Preheat the grill. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

  • Put the potato slices on the hot grill and cook for about 2 minutes on each side to mark them. Remove from the grill and place them in a single layer in a baking pan. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Add enough olive oil to reach 1/3 up the sides of the potatoes. Turn the potatoes over to coat with the oil. Scatter the thyme and garlic cloves over the potatoes, sprinkle with a little more salt, if desired, and place in the oven.

  • After about 15 to 20 minutes, the potatoes will be tender. Remove from the oven and let them cool in the oil. Serve at room temperature.

  • Chef's notes: Using a high quality olive oil will impart its flavor to the potato.
