These amazing sliced potatoes are baked with butter, Parmesan cheese, and parsley. We used red-skinned potatoes in the recipe because that is what I had on hand, but russet potatoes or Yukon Gold potatoes would be excellent. You can't really go wrong with potatoes + garlic + cheese, so feel free to use whatever you have on hand.

The crusty top is full of flavor, and the casserole is super easy to prepare and bake. Feel free to use thinly sliced green onions instead of minced onions, or leave the onions out. For​ some smoky flavor, add about 1/4 cup of minced ham or crumbled bacon. If you can't find a high-quality Parmesan cheese, feel free to opt for another grated cheese variety, such as locatelli, romano, or pecorino. Lastly, try to opt for fresh parsley—there is much more color and flavor in fresh vs. dried.


  • 1 to 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 4 tablespoons melted butter, divided

  • 2 tablespoons minced onion

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, or 1 clove pressed garlic

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat oven to 375 F. Put sliced potatoes in a bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of the melted butter, onion, parsley, garlic powder or pressed garlic, salt, pepper, and half of the cheese. Toss to blend ingredients and coat potatoes thoroughly.

  3. Brush remaining tablespoon of butter overr the bottom sides of a 9-inch pie plate.

  4. Arrange sliced potatoes in plate and then sprinkle remaining Parmesan cheese evenly over potatoes.

  5. Bake potatoes for 50 to 60 minutes, or until top is golden brown and potatoes are tender. After about 45 minutes, check for over-browning. Tent with a sheet of foil if necessary.
