Ingredients :
2 1/2 tablespoons butter
12 sprigs thyme, strip the leaves from the stems (optional)
1 large onion, sliced somewhat thickly (a tad more than 1/4 inch thick)
1 lb. red potatoes, washed and very thinly sliced 
2 tablespoons olive oil
sea salt and cracked black pepper
2 cups of Cheese: you can use whatever you like, I used:
1/2 cup grated gruyere
1/2 cup crumbled feta
1 cup grated mozzarella
Directions :
Preheat oven to 400°. Melt the butter in a 9-10 inch ovenproof frying pan (cast iron is great) over medium heat. Add the thyme and onion and cook for 5 minutes. Place the potato, oil, cheeses, salt and pepper in a bowl and toss to combine.

Top the onion with the potato mixture and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Turn upside down to serve.
