This dish comes from the famous Parisian restaurant and is excellent in its simplicity. It is interesting to note that the French use potatoes less as an accompaniment for main dishes than do our German and Anglo-Saxon neighbors. The French were quite late in accepting the potato into their cuisine, being more used to eating bread and cereals in the Mediterranean tradition.
2 lb potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1/3 cup butter, melted and clarified

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the potatoes in a bowl and cover them with the clarified butter. Season with salt. Gently mix to coat the potatoes with butter.

Arrange the potatoes in a single layer over a baking sheet, overlapping them slightly, like fish scales. Place the tray in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, until the potatoes are cooked and browned.

Serve hot with all meats and roasted poultry.
