Delicious and nothing more than stacked potatoes.
What is it about a potato that makes me want to start licking my lips. There are a kazillion recipes out there for potatoes whether they are white potatoes, red potatoes, sweet potatoes or even purple potatoes. You can eat them raw (I did as a kid with lots of salt), eat them as chips, mashed, in a casserole, baked and loaded with a million calories or even this simple little recipe elevates the lowly potato to new heights.
Potatoes pave are still just potatoes and very few ingredients go into making them. Just look at that melting, bubbly butter and the rosemary seeping into the thinly sliced potatoes (I used thyme the second time I made these). The technique is the hardest part of making these potato squares. If it for nothing more than the cute or presentation factor, you should try these.
Pave is a French word meaning paving stones. I think they look more like stacked dominos. I originally did the recipe from Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc cookbook. I’m giving you a few links at the bottom so you can see how others have made these little gems. I think this simple potato dish would be great with a steak, roast pork, chops or any kind of meat or chicken dish. They are yummy, beautiful and fun to eat.
