Idaho® Russet Potato and Litehouse® Ranch Pavé

Golden and crispy thin layers of Idaho® russet potatoes and creamy Litehouse® Ranch are topped with various flavorful combinations.



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Line a 4” oven-proof baking dish/pan with parchment, leaving approximately 4-5” of overhang on all sides.
  3. Set the cut thickness on a mandolin or meat slicer to approximately 1/16 inch.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the ranch, milk and flour. Slice the potatoes lengthwise directly into this mixture.
  5. Pour the potato slices and ranch mixture into the prepared baking dish. Important: make sure the mixture is evenly distributed in the pan.
  6. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and place in the oven.
  7. Bake for 2 hours or until a knife easily pierces the potatoes.
  8. Let rest for 15 minutes before placing a similar-sized baking dish/pan on top, weighed down with heavy cans.
  9. Let settle for about 2 hours before removing the weights and place in the refrigerator overnight.
  10. Invert pavé onto a cutting board and remove the parchment.
  11. Slice into the desired shape and sauté over high heat in a skillet or on a flat top with olive oil until golden on all sides.
  12. Season with kosher salt and top with desired toppings.
