This recipe for Potatoes Anna or the French Classic Pommes Anna is so good. I grew-up in a family that made virtually the same thing except it wasn’t made so attractive… my Grandmother used a deep roasting pan and kept piling on the potatoes…. I don’t think she ever made enough… we loved the buttery, crisp potatoes…. We would just pull apart sections and devour them.
There are fancy baking dishes for this recipe… and I’m sure fancy prices to go with it…. I used an 8-inch non-stick cake pan….. if I was serving more people… I’d use my 10 inch springform pan and maybe make two…
The picture you see was made for the two of us… I used 3 medium potatoes… nothing was left… we had it with steak and string beans… the meal was absolutely terrific! These potatoes go with just about everything…. and so quick and easy.
Adjust the amount of your ingredients to suit how many people you plan to feed. Figure at least one potato per person. Figure about one tablespoon of melted butter for every 3 potatoes.
I don’t like to stack my potatoes higher than 3 layers… because we really like them to crisp up.
