Nameless Potatoes

Accordion Potatoes
Serves 4
Adapted from Laura Calder’s French Taste: Elegant Everyday Eating, published by HarperCollins.


  • 2 pounds medium baking potatoes
  • Bay leaves
  • Fresh thyme sprigs
  • Salt (kosher works well)
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp olive or cold-pressed canola oil
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  3. With the potato lying on its side, make vertical cuts no wider than your baby finger into the potato from the top to about 3/4 of the way down. Do not cut all the way through the potato. (If, like me, you do cut all the way through, just pin the pieces together with a tooth pick.)
  5. Slip bay leaves and sprigs of thyme between a few of the slices in each of the potatoes.
  7. Place the potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet ensuring they don’t touch each other.
  9. Combine the oil and melted butter. Drizzle them mixture over the potatoes.
  11. Sprinkle  the tops with salt and fresh cracked black pepper.
  13. Bake for 45 to 60  minutes or until the potatoes are cooked and the skin is crisp and golden. Baking time varies with the size of the potato and the thickness of the slices, so keep an eye on them after the 45 minute mark.
