Everyone loves potatoes, they are so versatile, delicious and cheap. Layered potatoes are just layers of pleasure. They look so fancy and yet they are so easy! All you need is a mandoline and a cookie cutter.
Just a little disclaimer: the original recipe requires TONS of butter, which I cut down. French cuisine is all about butter and of course not for everyone. Nevertheless, these thin potato layers are so delicious you won’t eat French fries again (just kidding of course). I just gave it a fresh and lighter side with a cauli and cabbage mash, but you could of course side it up with anything. Get creative, get colourful, get fancy and try this out!

Pommes Paolo (Potato Stack) on Cauliflower and Red Cabbage Mash
- sauce pan
- electric blender
- oven tray
- Aluminum Foil
- 4-5 Medium Potatoes I mixed white and sweet Potatoes
- 15 gr Butter
- to taste Salt, Pepper and Rosemary
For the Cauliflower and Red Cabbage Mash
- 100 gr Cauli Flower
- 50 gr Red Cabbage
- to taste Salt and Pepper
- Warm up the oven at 200C. Cut the edges of the potatoes, and use a cookie cutter to make cylinder shaped potato pieces. Carefully, slice these with a mandoline from the circular side, placing them in a bowl. Generously season with salt.
- Make some potato stacks and line them up in a baking tray, using some aluminum foil for making a tight mold. They need to be very tight. Season with pepper and rosemary, and add the butter on top. Bake for about 45 minutes, then raise the heat to 250C for the remaining 15 minutes.
- For the cauli and cabbage mash, boil the cabbage and cauliflower for about 15 minutes in salted water. Partially drain, mash the mixture and season. I baked few cauli edges for 15 minutes for decoration.
- Serve the potatoes with the mash and baked cauliflower. Enjoy warm!
I do have a scientific mind, probably it’s the reason why I love to hide in the kitchen and start creating.
My cooking is healthy, fun and colorful… and really tasty!
