Named after the Texas Hill Country town started by German immigrants
Potatoes, pared and sliced lengthwise into eighths
Cold water (to soak potatoes)
1 tsp butter or bacon drippings for each potato used (or more fat, if needed), melted
Salt, pepper to taste
A few caraway seeds
Soak potato slices in cold water to cover for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 400o. Drain potatoes and pat dry. Drizzle melted fat over potatoes, turning to coat evenly. Arrange in a single layer on baking sheet (lined with aluminum foil for easy clean up, if desired). Bake until potatoes are browned, turning occasionally. When done, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, and a few caraway seeds.
