A fresh lemon-parsley topping gives these French-style potatoes incredible flavour. Slice the potatoes evenly for the best results.


Uncooked potato

3 pound(s), Russet-variety (about 3 large)

Olive oil

1 tbsp(s), extra-virgin

Kosher salt

¼ tsp(s), or to taste

Black pepper

pinch(es), freshly ground

Fresh parsley

1½ tbsp(s), fresh, flat-leaf, minced

Lemon zest

1½ tsp(s)

Minced garlic

1 tsp(s)


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Place oven racks in top 1/3 of oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper (or use nonstick baking sheets coated with cooking spray).
  2. Peel potatoes and slice horizontally into 1/4-inch-thick slices; place on prepared baking sheets. Drizzle potatoes with oil and gently toss to coat (use your hands to rub oil onto both sides of each slice); season to taste with salt and pepper. Make sure potatoes are in a single layer and roast until browned on bottom, about 25 minutes. Flip potatoes and rotate baking sheets; roast until browned on other side, about 20 to 25 minutes more (you can season this side with salt and pepper too, if desired).
  3. Meanwhile, in bottom of a large serving bowl, combine parsley, lemon zest and garlic. Add potato slices; gently toss. Yields 1/2 sliced potato per serving.
