Simple Potatoes

My husband dropped by Costco the other day. I had asked for some potatoes and did not realize how big of a bag would be coming to my door.
Time to get creative with the potato recipes. I am going for a simple recipe that can easily be dipped into my garlic aioli sauce. I like to serve them on top of my garlic aioli. Randy said this is his absolute favorite way that I serve potatoes. I hope you enjoy them as much as he does.
INGREDIENTS:
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
6 tablespoons butter
3 pounds peeled baking potatoes, cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices (I used Russets.)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and divided

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 450°.
Combine salt and pepper in a small bowl.
With a sharp knife or mandoline, or the slice blade on a food processor, slice the potatoes into thin slices. Pat the potato slices dry on a kitchen towel.
Melt 2 1/2 tablespoons butter in a 10-inch ovenproof dish over medium heat. Arrange a single layer of potato slices, slightly overlapping, in a circular pattern in pan;
sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt mixture. Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon melted butter over potatoes. Repeat the layers 5 times, ending with butter. Press firmly with buttered foil to pack. Cover and bake at 450° for 20 minutes.
Uncover and bake an additional 25 minutes or until potatoes are golden. Loosen edges of potatoes with a spatula. Place a plate upside down on top of pan; invert potatoes onto plate and cut into wedges.

I served my Garlic Aoli on the side. I love potatoes with my garlic aoli!
