  • loaf pan, 8½" x 4½"
  • mandolin
  • parchment paper
  • 2-qt. heavy-bottomed saucepan


  • 5 Yukon Gold potatoes medium
  • tsp. Kosher salt 
  • 1/4 C. duck fat
  • peanut oil for deep frying


Initial Baking

  • Preheat oven to  250℉.
  • Peel and wash five medium-sized Yukon gold potatoes.
  • Use a mandolin to thinly slice the potatoes.
  • Pour a quarter cup of duck fat into a large bowl. If your duck fat is solid, warm it in a microwave for a few seconds.
  • Add your sliced potatoes and one teaspoon of kosher salt.
  • Toss well making sure every slice is coated in fat.
  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Carefully layer potato slices, compressing layers and making sure there is duck fat between each layer.
  • Cover the top with parchment paper and place in a preheated 250℉ /120℃ oven and bake for three hours (or until a knife pierces through the middle very easily.)


  • Once the potatoes have finished baking, stack a second loaf pan on top of the parchment paper and weigh it down with some cans of food.
  • Place in the refrigerator to chill it for 12 hours.

Deep Frying

  • In a small saucepan, heat about an inch and a half of peanut oil to 375˚F/190℃.
  • While the oil is heating, unmold the layered potatoes and cut them into cubes.
  • With a large metal spoon lower potato stacks into the hot oil. You may have to gently nudge them off the bottom from time to time so they don’t stick.
  • Deep fry for 3-5 minutes or until they are golden brown.
  • Sprinkled with kosher salt and enjoy!
