  • 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1-inch-thick slices

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 3 large cloves garlic, grated

  • 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth or chicken broth

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 500 degrees F.

  2. Toss potatoes, butter, oil, thyme, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Arrange in a single layer in a 9-by-13-inch metal baking pan. (Don't use a glass dish, which could shatter.) Roast, flipping once, until browned, about 30 minutes.

  3. Whisk garlic into broth; carefully add the broth mixture to the pan. Sprinkle the tops of the potatoes with Parmesan. Continue roasting until most of the broth has been absorbed and the potatoes are very tender, about 15 minutes more. Serve hot.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
