potatoe bake second feture regular

What I like most about this recipe is the reward you receive.  Once the potatoes are done they look beautiful and the taste is fantastic.  This is a recipe that I have very few words to say … It is simple, delicious, and perfect!

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • melange of peppercorns, whole
  • 1/2 cup sage leaves

  • Thinly slice the potatoes with a mandolin.

  • Lightly oil a baking dish large enough to hold the potatoes.
  • Stack the potatoes in even rows.  Randomly place the sage leaves between the potato layers.
  • Roast for approximately one hour until they are golden and crispy.  Use a small knife and insert it inside the potatoes to make sure they are cooked.
  • Sprinkle some sea salt flakes and serve.

Tips

  • The quantity of potatoes used depends on the size of your baking dish.
  • Do not use extra virgin oil, when cooked for too long it can become bitter.  Use vegetable oil if you want.
  • You can use purple potatoes, Sebago or Royal delight potatoes.
