Shingled Roasted Potatoes
Shingling these potatoes is as easy as thinly slicing each (just not all the way through) before roasting them. The result is a beautiful display. Put them in the oven 30 minutes before the beef goes in so that everything is ready at the same time.

- 6 russet potatoes
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- Coarse salt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Peel one long side of each potato. Thinly slice each crosswise, cutting only three-quarters of the way through, keeping bottoms (unpeeled portions) intact. Brush sliced portion of potatoes with olive oil. Season with salt. Bake on a baking sheet in the lower third of the oven until tender and slightly golden, about 1 hour 5 minutes.
