Herbed Scalloped Potatoes

  • Yield: 4-6 servings


Olive oil for coating the baking dish
2pounds yellow potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
2cups vegetable stock
4cloves of garlic, pressed or minced
2 fresh sage leaves
2 bay leaves
1teaspoon dried tarragon
1/2teaspoon dried thyme
1/4teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Salt to taste
2tablespoons olive oil, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly oil a 21⁄2-quart baking dish.
  2. Layer the potatoes in the dish, and set aside.
  3. In a saucepan, combine the stock, garlic, sage, bay leaves, tarragon, thyme, rosemary, and pepper. Add salt to taste. Bring to a boil over high heat, then immediately remove the pan from the stove. Cover and let stand for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Discard the sage and bay leaves and pour the herbed broth over the potatoes. The potatoes will not be completely covered by the liquid. Drizzle the tops of the exposed potatoes with 1 tablespoon of the oil.
  5. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Remove the dish from the oven and turn the potatoes over, pressing down gently to immerse them as much as possible in the liquid. Drizzle the tops of the exposed potatoes with the remaining oil.
  6. Return to the oven and bake for 20 more minutes, or until the potatoes are tender, the liquids are reduced, and the top is nicely browned. Serve at once.
