This Crispy Potato Roast Is The Only Potato Recipe You’ll Ever Need

Meet your new go-to potato dish.

A great potato dish is a slam-dunk menu option when you’re cooking for guests.

Who doesn’t love potatoes in one form or another? They’re simple to make, taste delicious, and work well for every season and holiday. If you don’t have your own go-to potato recipe, it’s time to get one, and you might want to start with this crispy potato roast from Martha Stewart.

This simple recipe yields potatoes that are thinly cut and crispy. It’s a perfect side dish to last you through the week or to make for a dinner party. It only takes 25 minutes to prepare, and then you just stick it into the oven to bake. The whole dish is finished in just over two hours. Once you taste the finished product, you’ll see it’s worth the wait.

All you need are some potatoes, butter, shallots and thyme, making this dish a budget-friendly option, too. The recipe notes that the thinner the slices are, the crispier the potatoes will be, making this a great time to practice your knife skills (or just break out the mandoline).
