    Domino Potatoes

    Domino Potatoes are thinly sliced potatoes fanned out and roasted in the oven to resemble dominos. They were made famous by Chef Francis Mallmann and are incredibly simple to prepare. Like many potato recipes, this uses few ingredients and is an easy way to decorate an otherwise basic dish.

    The roasting of the potatoes is key to ensuring they are flavorful. They are similar in flavor to Potatoes Anna without all the layers.

    Ingredients You need

    • Potatoes – Large russet potatoes work perfectly for this.
    • Butter – Always use unsalted butter when cooking or baking.
    • Seasonings – I like only to use salt and pepper.

    How to Make Domino Potatoes

    Slice your potatoes into a rectangle removing the peels

    trimming potatoes

    Next, using a mandolin, thinly slice each potato and keep the pieces together in order.

    trimming potatoes

    Place them slightly fanned out but intact on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper. It’s ok if there is a little potato skin still on the potatoes.

    stacking potatoes

    Brush the top with melted butter and season with salt and pepper.

    adding butter to potatoes

    Bake them at 400° for about 40 to 45 minutes or until browned and cooked. Serve garnished with parsley.

    Make-Ahead and Storage

    Make-Ahead: These are meant to be eaten within an hour of making them.

    How to Reheat: Place them in a pan or on a metal tray and bake in the oven at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes or until warmed. Likewise, you can microwave it until warm.

    How to Store: Cover and place in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. These do not freeze that well, so I advise against them.

    Chef Notes + Tips

    • If you have a lot of leftover potatoes, they are excellent for making hash browns by slicing them through and frying them.
    • You can also finish the potatoes with fresh herbs or grated parmesan cheese.
    • If the potato is large enough, you may be able to get two servings out of 1 potato if you cut it correctly.
