  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt meticulously measured to enhance the flavors of the potatoes, ensuring a well-seasoned and balanced taste.
  • 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese thoughtfully chosen for its nutty and sharp flavor, melting beautifully to create a creamy and cheesy element that elevates the dish.
  • 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder carefully added to contribute a mild and sweet undertone, balancing the flavors and adding depth to the dish.
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder thoughtfully incorporated to infuse the potatoes with a savory and aromatic flavor, enhancing the overall taste profile.
  • 4 large potatoes carefully selected for their starchy and creamy texture, providing a hearty and comforting base for the dish.
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper skillfully added to provide a hint of spiciness and depth, adding a subtle kick to the dish.
  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter skillfully added to create a rich and velvety sauce that coats the potatoes, enhancing their natural flavors and adding a luxurious mouthfeel.


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • Take the potatoes and meticulously peel and thinly slice them, about 1/4 inch in thickness.
  • Generously grease a 9-inch pie plate with butter or non-stick cooking spray.
  • Arrange the potato slices carefully in the pie plate, overlapping slightly.
  • Melt the butter and delicately pour it over the potatoes.
  • Sprinkle with a generous amount of Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until it is golden brown in color.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before savoring the dish.
  • Serve it warm for a delectable experience.


- Make sure to use a sharp knife when slicing the potatoes, as this will help them cook evenly.
- For an added crunch, sprinkle some bread crumbs on top of the potato galette before baking.
- If you want to kick up the flavor even more, add some herbs such as thyme or rosemary to the potatoes.
- If you don't have all the spices listed, feel free to add your own favorites for flavor.
- You can also add cooked bacon or sausage to the potatoes before baking for a heartier dish.
