Lyonnaise Potatoes

So rich and buttery

So rich and buttery

These potatoes are really tender and soft with a lot of flavor. Pair them with any number of roast or grilled meats. They do take a bit of time to prepare due to the caramelized onions.

Lyonnaise Potatoes

  • 2 lbs potatoes peeled and sliced 1/4″ thick
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 large red onions halved and sliced paper thin
  • 8 tbsp butter
  • Salt/pepper

Parboil potatoes in salted water for two minutes then drain and set aside. Melt two tablespoons of butter over low heat in a 12″ oven-safe frying pan. Caramelize onions, which should take at least 20 minutes you want to get them nice and tender. Remove onions from pan and add remaining butter. Melt over medium heat and add garlic. Cook for 30 seconds then remove from heat. Layer half the potatoes in the pan then cover with onions. Layer remaining potatoes and bake at 350 degrees until tops begin to brown, about 25 minutes. Serve hot.

    Yummy potato dish. I have a stash of caramelized onions so the potatoes could go right into the preheated oven. 🙂
