Cook's Notes

The thinner the potatoes are cut, the crispier they'll become in the oven. Keep the slices together as you cut them so that you can arrange them easily in the dish.

    Does anyone know if this recipe would work well with sweet potatoes instead? Thanks in advance!

      I have not prepared the recipe though I would double the butter and remove the shallots, thyme, olive oil and include the not optional red-pepper flakes and even more flakes for I enjoy spicy sweet potatoes and baby-sit the oven-time and this is what I would attempt under the influence of intuition.

    I have not prepared this recipe but am studying and please consider removing 'With a sharp knife' and insist on a mandolin in the recipe instructions.

    I made this in my seasoned cast-iron skillet (very bacon-flavored) and it turned out great. However, I would never try it without a mandoline.

    @mrwhalen: Probably bacon. My plan is to use a cast-iron skillet in which I've cooked bacon instead of the oiled baking dish. Then wedge the torn bacon slices between the potatoes.

    I made this and it took forever! I felt it needed something more. Not sure what

    I made these potatoes for dinner tonight, but I cut the recipe in half and it turned out very good. It was very easy with a mandolin. I had this with pan-seared thick cut pork chops and it was like have a restaurant meal at home. It looked so impressive. I will make these again. YUM!

    has anyone made this succesfully? I am terrified I'm going to destroy it, as I always do with thin, crispy potato things.

    I wouldn't adjust the time at all. One layer of potatoes is going to cook in the same amount of time regardless of the diameter of the pan.
