  • 2 pounds russet potatoes

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 onions, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic

  • ½ cup butter

  • salt to taste

  • ground white pepper, to taste

  • 1 tablespoon finely minced fresh parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Peel potatoes and cut them into 1/2-inch slices. Place in a pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, then drain and set aside.

  3. Heat a large oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. Pour in olive oil, then add onions. Sauté until lightly caramelized, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in garlic and sauté until onions are deep brown and garlic is soft. Transfer mixture to a bowl.

  4. Place the skillet back on the stove over low heat. Melt butter in the skillet, then cover the bottom with 1/3 of the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Cover potatoes with 1/2 of the onion mixture. Cover with 1/2 of the remaining potatoes; season with salt and pepper. Spread remaining onion mixture on top. Cover with remaining potatoes; season with salt and pepper.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until potatoes are tender and browned on top, 10 to 12 minutes.

  6. Use a spatula to transfer potatoes to a serving platter. Sprinkle with chopped parsley just before serving.
