I loved French food when I was working in France. Pommes de Terre Maxim is a simple but special dish.

|1 kg potatoes, peeled, sliced thinly and dried||90 g butter||salt and pepper|
Preheat the oven to 200C. Place the potatoes in a bowl and add the melted butter. Season with salt and pepper and gently mix the potatoes to coat with butter. (For a non-French, spicy alternative, add 1 Tblspn cumin.)
Arrange the potatoes in a single layer over a baking sheet or low pan, overlapping them slightly to look like fish scales. Place the tray in the oven and bake 20 – 30 minutes until the potatoes are cooked and browned. Serve hot.
