Potatoes Layered with Artichokes and Breadcrumbs

Could not wait to share this recipe adapted from "My Calabria" by Rosetta Costantino with Janet Fletcher. In this cookbook; the recipe is titled Tortiera di Patate e Carciofi, Potatoes Layered with Artichokes and Breadcrumbs. This was comfort food at it's finest. I substituted frozen artichoke hearts in place of  the small artichokes and Japanese styled panko for the fresh bread crumbs,  keeping everything else pretty much the same. Take care to make the potato slices equally thin, so they will cook evenly.


2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and sliced about 1/8 inch thick
1 bag Trader Joe's frozen artichoke hearts (thawed)
8 Tablespoons of olive oil
Kosher salt
Ground pepper
1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 Tablespoons finely chopped flat leaf parsley
3 cloves garlic minced

To prepare:

Preheat oven to 400F. Cut potato slices and put into bowl, cover with cold water. In a bowl combine the breadcrumbs, cheese, parsley and garlic. Mix well. Lightly oil the bottom and sides of a 9 by 13 inch baking dish. Without draining potatoes, lift out about 1/3 of the slices overlapping slightly in dish. (The water clinging to them will generate steam as they bake.) Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the potatoes evenly with 1/4 cup of the breadcrumb mixture. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil. Top the potatoes and crumbs with one-half  of the artichokes , spreading them evenly. Sprinkle the artichokes with 1/4 cup of the breadcrumb mixture and 1 tablespoon of oil. Repeat this layering process once more, ending with a top layer of potatoes, salt and pepper, the remaining breadcrumb mixture, and a final drizzle of the olive oil.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until the potatoes are fully cooked and the top is golden brown, about 20 minutes longer. If necessary, broil the surface briefly to brown it. (Although I did not need to.) Let rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.
Serves 6-8.


  1. Oh I've got to make this dish. I've had my eye on My Calabria for ages now - I know Janet Fletcher - but somehow haven't gotten to it. This recipe looks fabulous. I think I'll make it for dinner this week!
