Description

Crispy leaf potatoes are a delicious potato side dish made with layers of buttery, sliced potatoes that crisp up when baked. The perfect side dish.


Ingredients

  • 1 bag (5 lb.) medium russet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)
  • fresh parsley, chopped (optional, for serving)
  • parmesan cheese, grated (optional, for serving)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Using a mandoline slicer, thinly slice the potatoes (peeled or unpeeled) and pat them dry with a paper towel.
  3. Transfer the spiced potatoes into a large mixing bowl and add in 1 tablespoon olive oil, melted butter, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Toss to coat evenly.
  4. Arrange the potatoes upright in a 9x13-inch casserole pan and brush the top with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. This helps the top get even more crispy.
  5. Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes until golden brown. Check occasionally to make sure the top doesn't brown too much.
  6. Top with parsley and parmesan cheese and serve immediately.

Notes

Duck fat vs. butter: Crispy leaf potatoes are commonly cooked in duck fat instead of butter. You can easily substitute this for another option with a greater depth of flavour.

Make ahead tips: I would not recommend making this ahead of time because the potatoes will start to go brown from oxidization. If you do want to slice the potatoes in advance, you can store them in a bowl filled with water to prevent them from oxidizing. Then, drain and pat dry the potatoes completely before seasoning and assembling.

How to store: You can store leftover crispy leaf potatoes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. To reheat, heat in a 300 F preheated oven for 10 minutes or air fryer for about 5 minutes, until warmed through. You can also heat in the microwave, but the texture will not be as crispy.
