Normally when I think of the word “cake” I think of a chocolate mixture with frosting or a sweet concoction to celebrate one’s birthday. But, when I saw this savory Crispy Potato Cake in Bon Appetit Magazine I just couldn’t resist.
Now, although this just looks like a glob of potatoes (it is), it does pack a ton of flavor due to its smothering in butter, garlic and herbs. It is as delicious as it is decadent. The good news is that this can easily be prepared ahead and then brought to a friend or family’s house to share. Whichever option you choose, you can’t go wrong!
Step 1: Clean, Peel and Chop Potatoes
Step 2: Cut and Saute Garlic
Step 3: Cook Cut Potatoes in
Butter, Salt and Pepper
Step 4: Press into Pan and Bake
Step 5: Add Garlic and Parsley; Eat!
This recipe is very simple to make and requires few ingredients (definitely bonus points in my opinion!). Next time, I’d suggest to add more garlic throughout the potatoes as well as a few more herbs for additional flavor.
This is definitely a perfect recipe to kick off celebrating the Fall season!
