6 tablespoons unsalted butter 610 69.04 0.05 0.72 0.00
4 cups finely sliced onions 184 0.46 42.96 5.06 7.82
5 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled 1310 1.53 297.16 34.36 37.42
Salt and pepper, to taste 3 0.03 0.69 0.12 0.28


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Add the butter and onions to a large pot and slowly sweat the onions until they’re tender and translucent, without any browning. While the onions are sweating, slice the potatoes to about 1 to 2 mm thick into large bowl. Add the potatoes to the onions and mix until all the potatoes are coated with the butter and onions. Lightly pepper the mixture and add salt until you can just taste the saltiness over the sweetness of the onion.
  2. Line the bottom of a 10-inch cast-iron skillet or heavy bottomed baking dish with parchment paper and place the potatoes so it’s heaping full. Once full, cut another piece of parchment to cover the top, wrap the whole with aluminum foil, and bake on a sheet tray for 1¾ to 2 hours, uncovering for the last 10 minutes. It’s ready when you can pierce the potatoes through with a skewer and feel no resistance.
  3. Remove pan from oven and let cool at room temperature for about 45 minutes, then gently press down on top of the potatoes until the top is flat. Cool in the refrigerator to meld the flavors for 5 or 6 hours. Overnight works best.
  4. When ready to serve, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. If cutting into individual pieces: With a knife or spatula, carefully cut around the edges of the pan between the pan and the parchment to loosen the potatoes and invert onto a cutting board or large plate. Trim any dark or ragged edges and cut into 12 slices. Bake on a sheet pan until golden brown and hotabout 10 minutes. _If serving family style:_Heat in pan for 20 minutes, or until piping hot, and slice at table.
