Potatoes Anna Recipe, so much tastier and beautiful than French Fries. Easy potato cake your family will love.
Potatoes Anna Recipe, Better Than French Fries
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen telling you about a delightful crispy potato recipe. This Potatoes Anna recipe is an easy way to make a very attractive potato side dish. According to Betty Crocker’s International Cookbook (mine is from 1980, but it has been updated), 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 the first time and that was way too much so I cut the amount down to 2 tablespoons. I think olive oil could be easily substituted for the butter and it would taste almost as good.
Check out the recipe…
You will need a round casserole dish or pan to bake this, and aren’t these lovely?
