  • 12 medium potatoes

For the sauce:

  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup parmesan
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp dry thyme
  • 1 tsp dry dill
  • 1 tsp dry basil
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • juice from one lemon

You will also need:

  • baking paper
  • baking sheet
  • potato peeler
  • potato mandolin or sharp knife
  • colander
  • medium bowl
  • 2 spatulas
  • large dish
  • toothpicks
  • spatula


  • Line a baking sheet with baking paper and set aside
  • Pre heat oven to 375 F
  • Peel potatoes, clean and slice with a mandolin or a sharp knife
  • Wash the slices in cold water and drain well in a colander
  • Make the sauce: mix all ingredients for the sauce in a medium bowl
  • In a large dish, add one layer of potatoes and sprinkle with a little bit of the sauce. Continue with another layer and so on until you finish the potatoes and the sauce. Then using 2 spatulas, gently toss potatoes until evenly covered in sauce.
  • Make stacks out of 6-7 potato rounds and place the stacks in the lined baking sheet.
  • Stick a toothpick through each stack. This will help with keeping the slices together while baking, removing the stacks once baked and serving to guests.
  • Bake until edges are golden brown and center is soft, about 35-40 minutes. Keep longer if you like crispier potatoes.
