paper-thin roasted potatoes

Paper-Thin Roasted Potatoes aren’t your typical roasties. If you have a mandolin hiding in a drawer, now’s the time to pull it out. Also get out the guard…fingertips are not part of the ingredient list here. Thinly sliced, oiled and seasoned potatoes and onions (or leeks in my case) are shingled down a sheet tray. They bake up crispy-curly-edged and, as Dorie says, like hot potato chips. I scaled back the recipe and set up just a half sheet pan of potatoes and leeks. I had some slices leftover, so I arranged them into a little cast iron skillet, which I just par-baked so I could easily finish it off the next morning for breakfast with some smoked salmon and an (unpictured) egg. I know my sheet tray is also unpictured (although I do have a few horrendously-lit nighttime photos on my phone), but I did take Dorie’s suggestion to add little bloops of sour cream here and there, along with a flurry of chopped scallions and cilantro, roasted red pepper bits and dashes of green Tobasco. So basically I turned a very elegant side dish into sheet pan potato chip nachos for Sunday night football, and they were awesome!

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see how the group liked this one.

  1. These nacho chips are awesome for any time in the day. Breakfast with smoked salmon, that does it for me!

  2. Your potato nachos sound amazing! Nighttime photography is the worst haha…the time change makes it so hard! It is dark before I even make dinner! 😂😂

  3. This is brilliant and I would absolutely use a cast iron pan next time – too messy with a sheet pan and hard to figure out what size pan works! This looks awesome!

  4. Yum potatoes for breakfast. I am going to make these with the chicken.
