For even cooking and great browning, we began our Potato Galette recipe on the stovetop and then slid the pan onto the bottom rack of a hot oven. Using an oven-safe nonstick skillet averted the risk that our Potato Galette would stick to the pan’s bottom. To keep the potatoes from sliding away from one another when we sliced our galette, we included cornstarch in the butter that we were using to coat the potatoes and compressed the galette using a cake pan filled with pie weights for the first half of cooking.

Serves 6 to 8

In order for the potato cake to hold together, it is important to slice the potatoes no more than 1/8  inch (3 mm) thick and to make sure the slices are thoroughly dried before assembling the cake. Use a mandoline slicer or the slicing attachment of a food processor to slice the potatoes uniformly thin. A pound of dried beans, rice, or coins can be substituted for the pie weights. For an alternate method for unmolding the galette, see related content.
