How To Prepare Potato Galette

🥔 First, slice your potatoes real thin, I used a mandolin.

💧 Secondly, remove excess moisture from the potatoes.

🔥 Preheat the cast iron with the 2 tbsp of olive oil.

🧈 Add the melted butter to the potatoes with the seasoned salt and pepper.

🧀 Start layering your potatoes on the cast iron, starting from the center. After each layer put some cheese, then more potatoes. Repeat for about 6-7 layers. Make sure the last layer is potatoes and not cheese.

🥘 Cover the top of the potatoes with parchment paper and add something heavy.

⏱ Cook on the stove at medium high for about 7-8 minutes.

✨ Remove the parchment paper and bake at 400F for 55 minutes.

❤️ Lastly, place the parchment on top of the potatoes again, flip it onto a cutting board. Add flaky sea salt. Cut into triangles and transfer to a plate. Remove the parchment paper, add chives and black pepper.
