  • ½ cup butter

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 ½ pound russet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 1 pound root vegetables, such as golden beets, celeriac, and/or parsnips, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 1 8-10 ounce sweet potato, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 1 ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2 tablespoon chopped chives


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. For brown butter, in a small saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook 5 to 7 minutes more or until butter turns a light golden brown, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and add garlic. Let stand 5 minutes.

  2. Drizzle 2 Tbsp. of the garlic butter into a 10-inch cast-iron skillet. Arrange one-third of the potato and vegetable slices in a circular pattern in skillet, overlapping slices. Drizzle with 1 1/2 Tbsp. butter and sprinkle with some of the salt and pepper. Repeat layers two more times.

  3. Cover skillet with buttered foil. Place skillet over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes or until it begins to sizzle. Transfer skillet to oven and bake 30 minutes. Remove foil; bake 20 to 30 minutes more or until golden and potatoes and vegetables are tender. Let stand 10 minutes. Loosen potatoes and vegetables from skillet and invert onto a serving plate. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and chives.
