Rosemary Potatoes Anna
So, it’s Mother’s Day weekend and I’m not gonna see my momma <insert sad face emoji.> But, I did make a dish in her honor. You see, the dish potatoes anna is a classic French dish called pommes anna. Potatoes are sliced thinly, layered, and cooked in copious amounts of butter. Gotta love the French! Why is this dish in my mom’s honor? Well, we are part Frenchie! My mom’s side of the family tree has relatives from Lerrain, a small commune in northeastern France. I’m dying to go visit the beautiful French countryside and see where my family is from and hopefully I can do it with my mom!
So, if you are so lucky and get to visit with your mom this weekend, you should TOTALLY make this for her! It would pair so lovely with a nice frittata or soft scrambled eggs and smoked salmon with a dollop of creme fraiche, duh! Or, you could definitely serve these rosemary potatoes anna as a side dish for dinner. Maybe with some roasted chicken thighs in my new eBook, 30 Quick and Easy Meals, free of gluten, grains, dairy, soy, basically junk free!

Okay, back to potatoes. Here’s the deal, I don’t eat them very often, but when I do, they are SO GOOD! I have some rosemary growing in my yard and I thought it would pair perfectly in this dish, so I went out a plucked a few sprigs. I forgot how much I love the smell of rosemary!
Once you slice the potatoes on your handy dandy mandoline and arrange them in your skillet, this dish is hands off while some magic happens in the oven. The potatoes have to cook for just about an hour, so plan accordingly! Layering the potatoes and brushing them with butter makes for a nice crispy brown outside, and buttery soft inside. I can’t believe this recipe only has 4 ingredients in it and tastes so delicious! Yukon gold potatoes + Himalayan sea salt + butter or ghee + fresh rosemary. That’s it!
