I can just hear the crunch from my phone!
Since my thumb isn’t a great scale, the middle cubes in the photo are about 1”x1”x1-1/2”
They look amazing ! A bit too dense you say ? What will you do differently next time ? Too much layers ?
I think I compressed them too much as I expected each layer to slightly gray at the ends. Damn toasty and I think I had like 30 layers!
My man sliced the potato only to re-potato the potato
Wait for the video when I put it in a food lathe and chisel a thin fry.
the last pic got my pupils dilated
Same here. Cannot believe it!
I just saw a video on YouTube the other day showing how to do this. Any pointers for first timer trying this out?
This was my first time after watching YT like you! What I messed up was not having enough duck fat or a similar oil to coat each slice. As mine spin the end were a little too dense and I’m assuming if I had the fat or oil in between they would have separated a bit more. But damn tasty.
Thanks for the pointer! The YouTube videos always makes it seem so easy so it’s always nice to ask fellow cooks for further tips that they don’t mention in the videos. Really appreciate your response!
Np. It’s fun cooking from YT videos and you’re right, it’s because they seem easy and in the end, it tastes great so that’s all that matters. Have fun.
How long did it take you to make them?
It took me like an hour to slice them and layer them. That’s the most time consuming. Then bake for an hour. And then put them in the fridge overnight. That’s most of the 15hrs. And then take them out, slice, and fry. And make sure you have someone else clean up afterwards because deep frying anything gets messy.
potato pave is definitely on my list of things to make. Yours look great BTW!
I didn’t know that’s what it was called. Awesome.
Can I have the recipe, please?
They are a bit thick but for the rest they look amazing
Yeah, the first ones I wasn’t sure how to cut them so I did thirds. The. The rest I did in quarter slices and the final one I made perfect cubes. It’s funny, I actually preferred the thicker ones as the middles were super soft and edges super crispy.
Is there anything between the layers...like a seasoning? ?
Hmm who would have known, anyway sounds good 👍
My mouth it's...
I could never have the patience but these look delicious!
Yeah, I'm ripping thus recipe off. That looks good.
I’ve made these before and they are fucking amazing
Prep time: 15 hours.
Eating time: 5 minutes.
Pomme Anna always nice
What temperature do you cook them at if you're doing 15 hours? Also they look mega!
350 for 1 hr. And then you let sit in the fridge overnight. That’s how you get to 15hrs. Also, weren’t that big bot more like steakhouse fries.
I made this but kept the slices full width and pan fried instead of deep fried.
How did that turn out? I was tempted to try one at full slice. Was afraid to get too thin as I thought it would fall apart, but I think next time that's the way I'm going to go as none of them fell apart aside from anything that was on top.
Also, deep fry definitely made them too oily. I guess that's what happens with all of those layers. Maybe I should have used peanut oil or something with a higher smoke rate.
The fry temp will definitely make a difference. Doesn't need to be peanut oil but needs to be the right temp. The slice turned out ok. Some parts towards the middle didn't brown as well.
Since you did the slice, did you eat it with your hands or a fork/knife? I liked the idea of finger food but was hoping my individual slices would have started to fray a bit more. It was fun eating peeled layers though.
I think next time I'm definitely going to try different thinnesses and to do a whole slice. It was definitely fun and easy. And I know the wife loved making garlic aioli to accompany it.
I used a fork and knife with the rest of dinner. It started to fall apart after cutting it up.
Those look delicious.
Bro come on give us a recipe.
Lots around. [EmmyMade has a good one](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddxPYgU0ZZk&). I went with a hybrid as I didn't have duck fat.
Thank you, kind sir!
