  • 1 tablespoon:unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon:olive oil
  • 3/4 pound:boiling or baking potatoes, scrubbed but not peeled
  • 1/4 teaspoon:crumbled dried rosemary



  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. In a small bowl stir together the butter and the oil.
  3. In a food processor fitted with a 1-millimeter slicing blade or with a mandoline, slice the potatoes thin.
  4. Working quickly to prevent the potatoes from discoloring, brush the bottom of a 9-inch cast-iron skillet with some of the butter mixture and cover it with a layer of the potato slices, overlapping them.
  5. Brush the potatoes with some of the remaining butter mixture, sprinkle them with some of the rosemary, and season them with salt and pepper.
  6. Layer the remaining potatoes with the remaining butter mixture and the rosemary in the same manner.
  7. Heat the mixture over moderately high heat until it begins to sizzle, transfer the skillet to the middle of the preheated oven, and bake the galette for 25 minutes, or until it is golden and the potatoes are tender.
  8. Cut the galette into wedges.
  9. Serves 2 to 3.
  10. This recipe can be doubled or tripled when made in a larger skillet.
