  1. Combine salt, pepper, and thyme in a bowl.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onions until soft and golden brown, about 8 minutes. Move to a bowl.
  3. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet; remove from heat.
  4. Arrange 1/3 of potato slices in the skillet in a slightly overlapping layer. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt mixture. Top with 1/2 of the onions and 1/2 of the Gruyere cheese. Repeat layers, ending with potatoes; sprinkle with remaining salt mixture.
  5. Cover and cook over medium-low heat, reducing heat to low if necessary, until potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking, about 5 minutes. Run a spatula around edges to loosen; let cool, 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Invert potatoes carefully onto a serving dish.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Use the slicing blade of a food processor to get thin, even potato and onion slices.

This is a very nice and simply delicious potato dish. I was afraid that with a total of 3 layers it would take forever to cook in my cast iron pan. Long and behold the potatoes came out very ten...
