Preheat oven to 400°. Spread out the potato slices in a large rimmed baking pan. In a small bowl, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in microwave. Stir olive oil into the butter and then drizzle over potatoes. Toss to coat and then spread the potatoes out evenly in the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven until golden, about 35 min. total, flipping the potatoes half way. While the potatoes are roasting, in a small skillet over medium heat, melt the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter. Add the garlic and cook until softened and very fragrant but not too brown. Remove pan from heat. Transfer half of the roasted potatoes to a serving dish and drizzle with half of the garlic butter mixture. Sprinkle with half of the thyme. Add the remaining potatoes, followed by the remaining garlic butter mixture and thyme. Sprinkle with Parmesan, adding more salt and pepper, if desired. Serve hot.
