A slightly simplified version of the classic dish, cooked, nevertheless, in lots of butter.

Pommes Anna or Anna potatoes, are a classic French dish of sliced and layered potatoes that are cooked in a very large amount of melted butter. For that reason, even though the butter is eventually discarded, and because their preparation is both meticulous and labor intensive, they are seldom prepared today in their original fashion. There are, however, numerous modern recipes that are somewhat easier to prepare and that use considerably less butter.
