An all-star lineup of ingredients in this simple potato side dish makes it clear that this dish is a winner. A mandoline is the key to the chip-thin slices of potatoes, which you’ll build up into a dense potato cake that is irresistibly tender and creamy in the center and crispy on the outside. It's like two side dishes in one! Though it takes some time to assemble, there's nothing hard about it. The result is a wow-worthy addition to any dinner table. Serve alongside roasted meats, on Thanksgiving dinner, or as part of a special brunch. Shopping tip: Look for potatoes—both the Yukon gold and the sweet—that are similar in size and shape, which will help make the layers even.
