Ingredients
  • 2 ½ pounds medium Yukon gold potatoes ( 5–6 potatoes), scrubbed but not peeled
  • ¼ cup plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 8 thyme sprigs
  • 8-10 sage leaves
  • ¾ cup finely grated Gruyère (about 1 ½ ounces), divided
Instructions
    1.

    Preheat oven to 425F with the rack in the center.

    2.

    Thinly slice potatoes to a uniform thickness of ⅛-inch thick. A mandoline makes this job very easy, but you can also use a Chef Knife. Either way, be careful!

    3.

    For a pretty presentation, try to keep potato slices together to maintain their original shape while tossing them with ¼ cup olive oil and  salt.

    4.

    Arrange in an overlapping shingled pattern in an 8x8” Baking Dish. They can be arranged in rows or in a swirling pattern, your choice!

    5.

    Sprinkle with black pepper and sweet paprika and bake 30 minutes.

    6.

    Strip leaves from thyme sprigs. Add to a small bowl with sage leaves and drizzle with remaining 2 tsp. olive oil and toss to coat.

    7.

    Remove Baking Dish from oven and top with potatoes with oiled thyme and sage leaves (use the back of a spoon to spread them around) and ½ cup Gruyère.

    8.

    Return Baking Dish to oven and bake until potatoes are soft and tender on the interior (use a Paring Knife to peel back a few layers to see if the tip can insert easily) and golden brown and crisped on the top, 20–30 minutes more. Top with remaining ¼ cup Gruyère and let cool slightly before serving.
