Let’s see together how to prepare the excellent scalloped potato stacks
- 3 potatoes
- 2 mozzarella
- tomato sauce
- Parmesan cheese
Peel the potatoes and cut them very thinly. Use a mandoline so as to have a homogeneous result and slices that are all the same and especially with a very small thickness. You can also use a well-sharpened knife.
Put the potato slices in a bowl, sprinkle with extra virgin olive oil and salt. Mix well to sprinkle perfectly all the slices.
Grease a muffin mold with extra-virgin olive oil using a special food brush.
Compose your dish. Lay down a few slices of potato, add some tomato sauce, oregano, a slice of mozzarella and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
Lay down other slices of potatoes and continue this way until you have finished all the ingredients.
Finish the dish with a couple of potato slices, tomato sauce and sprinkle the surface with oregano and grated Parmesan. The quantities of the sauce, the Parmesan or the oregano can vary according to your tastes.
Put in a preheated oven at 356°F for about 25 minutes. Once cooked, serve to your guests warm so as to fully appreciate all the consistency of this dish.
Store the scalloped potato stacks for one day in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
Before serving them again, reheat them in a traditional oven or for a few seconds in the microwave so that the mozzarella melts perfectly and the dish is warm again.
It is possible to replace the mozzarella with another cheese or make a version with pesto, replacing the tomato sauce with Genoese pesto.
