WOW! These are soooo good and they look so fancy! A bit more work than traditional potato recipes but they look amazing! The original recipe called for 1/2 cup melted butter - but I used about 1/4 cup.

Directions

  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 450°F Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and butter the paper.
  2. Using a madoline, cut the potatoes into thin, nearly transludent slices; you should get about 24 slices from each potato. Avoid making the slices too thin, or they will shrink and break during cooking.
  3. Lay half the slices on the baking sheet. Brush with butter. Place 1 herb leaf in the centre of each slice and cover with another slice. Brush with butter. Sprinkle with salt.
  4. Bake for 6 to 7 minutes. Turn and bake for another 6 or 7 minutes or until the potatoes are a light golden colour.

We loved these! I was looking for something interesting to do with potatoes and this worked brilliantly. I absolutely love basil so used fresh basil leaves and the flavour was lovely. Next time I would mix some garlic powder in with the melted butter to give a broader range of flavours. Thanks for a keeper! Made for 123 Hit Wonders.

These were pretty easy to put together for me. I used fresh basil. Before I put the fresh basil and potatoes together, I drizzled some olive oil on all the slices and sprinkled with salt, pepper, and some dried basil for lots of extra flavor. I had chicken in the oven at 400, so I did these at 400 for 30 minutes and they were semi crispy which was exactly perfect for us. Can't wait to try with cilantro!

Loved it.. as you said, a bit more work involved but I guess it's worth it! My soon-to-be-2 year old DD was munching away as well which is a good sign since she's a fussy eater! Thank you. Will be making a lot more of these from now on..
