  • 3 large whole russet potatoes
  •  2 tablespoons high-heat-resistant vegetable oil
  •  salt and ground black pepper to taste
  •  3 tablespoons butter
  •  4 sprigs thyme, plus more for garnish
  •  ½ cup chicken broth, or more as needed


Fondant Potatoes

Preheat the oven to 425 Farennheit/220 Celsius.

Cut off the ends of the russet potatoes, making sure they stand on their ends. With a sharp knife, peel the potatoes from top to bottom to make each potato into a uniform cylinder.  Cut each cylinder in half crosswise to make six 2 inch potato cylinders.

In a bowl of cold water, place the potatoes for about 5 minutes to remove the starch from the outsides. Pat it dry with paper towels.

Over high heat, place a heavy oven-proof skillet on the stove and pour in vegetable oil. Let the oil heat until it shimmers slightly. Place the potato cylinders with the best-looking ends into the hot oil.  Lower the heat to medium-high and pan-fry the potatoes until well-browned, about 5–6 minutes.

Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Flip the potatoes onto the opposite ends and use a paper towel held with tongs to carefully blot out the oil from the skillet.  Add butter and thyme sprigs to the pan or skillet. With the tongs, carefully pick up a thyme sprig and use it to paint butter over the top of the potatoes.

Let the potatoes cook until the butter foams and turns from white to a pale tan color. Season with a sprinkle of more salt and pepper. Carefully pour the chicken stock into the skillet.

Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and cook until the potatoes are tender and creamy, about 30 minutes.  If the potatoes need to be more tender, add ¼ cup more of chicken stock and let cook for 10 more mins.

Place the potatoes on a serving platter. Spoon some thyme-scented butter from the skillet over the potatoes for a touch of sauce. For garnish, use thyme sprigs.

Let it cool at room temperature for about 5 minutes before serving.
