Cook's Illustrated (April 2011)
One of our favorite potato recipes -- actually, one of our favorite dishes in general -- was a Crispy Potato Roast we made last year. Golden and roasted on the outside, warm and buttery on the inside, it's a knockout of a dish -- and how often can you say that about potatoes? Since we wrote about it last January, we've heard from several Bitten Word readers that it's become an instant fave around their dinner tables, too.
So the bar was high when we spied this Potato Galette in the April Cook's Illustrated. But we were sold on CI's description of "a crisp, earthy-tasting potato cake" and the accompanying photo of beautifully layered potatoes. Plus, the article promises a great dish without all the fussy layering.
Could this newcomer hold its own against the heavyweight Crispy Potato Roast?
Time for a potato-off!
