Potato and Tomato Galettes


Layers of thyme-flecked potato and tomato slices are baked to crisp perfection. If you have a mandoline, use it to make the thinnest, most even potato slices.

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for baking sheet
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, plus sprigs for garnish
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 3 medium red potatoes (3 inches in diameter each, about 3/4 pound total), cut crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick rounds
  • 1 medium tomato (about 1/2 pound), cut crosswise into 8 slices


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush a baking sheet with oil; set aside. Stir thyme, oil, and salt in a medium bowl. Add potatoes; toss to coat.

  2. Arrange potatoes on prepared baking sheet, overlapping slices slightly in a spiral to make 4 rounds (about 5 inches in diameter each). Add tomatoes to bowl with remaining oil mixture; turn to coat. Place 2 tomato slices on top of each potato round. Bake until potatoes are tender and edges are beginning to brown, 15 to 22 minutes. Garnish with thyme sprigs.

    We loved this recipe. I ground a little pepper on top before baking and sprinkled some parmesan cheese as well and we (2 of us) ate the entire pan!!

    A question: is this a finger-food appetizer? Or do you need to eat it with a knife and fork?

    SO TASTY and simple. Even our pickiest eater gobbled them up.

    I made this for my family and they absolutely loved them. My mother can be picky about things that go into the "remake" category and she insisted I make them again as soon as possible. Also, if you need more to fit on the pan just make a thin layer with the potatoes overlapping a little.

    My family loved these! I also made ones with sweet potatoes which were a bigger hit!
