  1. Preheat oven to 500°F (475°F for convection).
  2. In a medium bowl, combine melted butter, dried herbs, salt and pepper.
  3. Slice potatoes into 1-inch rounds and toss in butter mixture. Lay out on a metal baking sheet in a single layer and roast for 15 minutes.
  4. Flip over, using a flexible (fish) spatula and return to oven for another 15 minutes.
  5. Carefully pour vegetable broth onto sheet pan and add smashed garlic. Roast for an additional 10 – 15 minutes to allow most of the stock to get absorbed and to get the tops super crispy.
  6. Sprinkle with fresh herbs and serve.
