Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Delicious rendition! Everything worked great. I used a mandolin to slice the potatoes extra thin and i didn't peel the potatoes first. I also omitted both kinds of pepper for personal taste. Made it twice, and the second time around I added a layer of sweet onion. My daughter loved it as well and asked me for the recipe. We always count on Kittencal for perfect recipes. in addition, next time I may add some crispy bacon as a garnish. Made for Billboard tag.
