  1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. With motor running, drop garlic through the feeder tube of a food processor to mince. Scrape down sides of bowl. With motor running, add oil through feeder tube; continue to process. Transfer to a small bowl, stir in thyme and set aside. Switch to the slicing blade and slice the potatoes (or thinly slice them with a knife).
  3. Brush a little of the garlic oil over the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch (or similar size) baking dish. Make 4 layers in this order: potatoes, a generous brushing of the oil, a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Slowly add broth at one corner to avoid washing off garlic and herbs.
  4. Bake until most of the broth has been absorbed, about 45 minutes. To brown, move pan to middle rack and broil until spotty brown, about 5 minutes.
  5. Let rest so potatoes continue to absorb liquid, about 10 minutes. May be made ahead, held at room temperature while roast cooks, then reheated.

This recipe is absolutely delicious! I used homemade chicken broth, which might be what made it so good. The garlic/thyme seasoning with the olive oil makes it a great side-dish for any Italia...

Verey oily and no real taste

We really liked these potatoes. We did not think that they were oily at all. I did reduce the recipe to make for 4 servings so maybe that would make a difference, don't see how but you never k...

Extremely oily and can only taste the thyme! Will never make this again.
