Recipe Idea: Potatoes Anna, Better Than French Fries
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen at Recipe Idea Shop. Potatoes Anna is an easy way to make a very attractive potato side dish. According to Betty Crocker’s International Cookbook (1980), it is “one of France’s many inspired potato creations.” The dish “was created during the reign of Napoleon III and named after one of the fasionable ladies of the day.”
Don thought it was so good, he said, “You can make this anytime!”
I’m an Irish American lass and potatoes are one of my favorite vegetables. Potatoes Anna are pretty and so tasty. Impress your family; make some tonight. I used a tart pan and it worked perfectly.
Note: The original recipe called for 1/3 cup butter. I used that amount when I made it and that was way too much so I cut the amount down to 2 tablespoons. I think olive oil could be substituted for the butter and it would taste almost as good.
