Fancy Potatoes - TNT

We are going to a family get-together - everybody is
bringing something - I volunteered a fancy(but really easy) potato dish.
I have made this before and it was wonderful.

Pomme Anna

2-3 lbs potato (I use yukon gold)
kosher salt
lots of pureed garlic (garlic powder would work)
lots of good olive oil.

Cut potatoes into very thin slices - I use mandolin I don't peel potatoes

Using an ovenproof casserole - oil the bottom and sides (I use cast iron 5 qt)
Begin layering the potatoes by placing the first slice in the center of
the casserole and spiralling the rest of the layer outward from center.
Let the slices of this first layer overlap a bit.
Brush 1st layer with oil and, season with salt and garlic.
Continue simple layers ( you don't need to do that fancy spiralling
any more - just place slices in a circle is fine. Season and oil each layer
until all potatoes are used up.

Place heavy foil over the top and press down firmly - you could also
place an ovenproof plate over the top and weigh it down.

Begin cooking on stovetop over medium to low flame for 20-25 min.
Transfer to preheated 350 oven to continue cooking until potatoes
are tender.

Invert casserole and slice for serving.

Most recipes call for butter or clarified butter for this dish but
I like Olive Oil - and it's healthier too

Mike, those sound great. The presentation sounds impressive, too. I'll have to try a scaled-down version soon.

Thanks for the picture. I will really try these now that I've seen the way the finished product can look.
