Reduced Fat Pommes Anna (Potatoes Anna)

I made this recipe up after spending ages looking for a less fattening version of Pommes Anna. I used everyday Desiree potatoes - I think any type of potato would work. You can also omit the cheese or change to a hard cheese like Parmesan. I also have added garlic salt instead of regular on some occasions. The potatoes need slicing down to about 1-2mm thick to make this the best.

  1. Preheat oven to 200'C.
  2. Wash potatoes, but don't peel, and slice very thin (best done using a mandolin) Pat the potatoes dry using paper towel.
  3. Line a 20cm cake tin, pie dish or any similar sized dish with baking paper.
  4. Place potatoes from the outside in, overlapping slightly to cover the base of the dish, brush with butter and season to taste.
  5. Repeat step 3 until half the potatoes are used.
  6. Sprinkle half the cheese over at this time.
  7. Repeat step 3 again until all the potatoes are used up, ending with butter.
  8. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.
  9. Wrap in foil and cook for 20 minutes.
  10. Remove the foil and cook for another 10-15 minutes until crispy and browned on top and edges.
  11. Remove from the oven and flip onto a serving plate, remove the baking paper and cut into wedges for serving.
