Mini Pommes Anna ~

I love potatoes, well any carb really.  But, I am ever so in love with potatoes, really.  I have made many kinds of potato dishes over the years, but this one is a cinch to make and it's delcious too.  And it's all baked in a muffin tin, how easy is that?

No real recipe, just have on hand some very thinly sliced potatoes.  I used a mandoline, on a very thin setting.  If you have a food processor, it will work too, or even a good sharp knife.  The potatoes need to be really thinly sliced, that's all.  Just potatoes, salt, pepper and fresh thyme leaves.  It makes quite a statement on your dinner table too.

Here is what I did.

Melt a couple of tablespoons of butter, brush the inside of a six holder cupcake/muffin pan.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees farenheit.

Now take about three slices of potato and lay them in each muffin slot.  Brush with a little butter and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper, just a pinch of each.  Place 2 or 3 slices more on top of the first layer and brush again with a little butter.  Repeat layers until muffin slot is filled.  Sprinkle with a little more salt, pepper, and finish with a sprinkle of fresh thyme leaves.

You will need about 3 large potatoes to fill a six muffin pan.  Press the potatoes down with your fingers gently as you make your layers.

Place in the oven uncovered for 40 to 45 minutes, uncovered.  Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.


These will come out of the muffin tins easily.  I used a thin spatular to take them out and you can serve them either straight out or invert them and they will look like the one in the middle of the above picture.  They look gorgeous either way don't you agree?  Here's a closer look at the inverted version.  Just adorable and each muffin tin of potatoes is just enough for one serving.



Oh did I say how simple these potatoes are to make?  Well, they are foolproof and taste simply delicious.  And the ideas are endless too.  Any flavor combination you'd like you could do.  Next time, I will be trying some parmesan cheese, sprinkled in between the layers.  Because next to my love for potatoes, is my love for cheese!   

Enjoy ~

Thank you Carolyn,

They were wonderful and so easy to make. I had them with Ina's scallops, but think they could go with anything really.

The presentation makes an outstanding look to your dinner table.

I made four, because my muffin tin holds only six. I think they will keep nicely until I finish them. :)

Thanks again,
Mare

I've made a "whole" Pommes Anna before but never done them individually like this. What a great idea! Especially since we're empty nesters. I'll be trying these for sure.

Newly following from Foodie Friday. Thanks so much for sharing this!
