I was given my first Cuisinart food processor from my parents - 23 years ago when I got married. It was really my first kitchen appliance that I used consistently and it was awesome. I used my Cuisinart to chop, slice, dice and knead. That machine lasted 20 years - until my wonderful husband upgraded my Cuisinart in 2014 to a newer model when mine started to give me problems. I completely expected an even more magnificent Cuisinart that would be even better than my previous Cuisinart. That is NOT what I got. Unfortunately, Cuisinart quality is NOT what it used to be. Within the 3 years that I owned my new food processor - I replaced every single part - at my own expense. It started with plastic pieces that were breaking off and then it advanced to more complex, motor issues. (None of which was under warranty.)
Ok, Rant about my disappointment in Cuisinart - over. Let me just say that in December, when my beloved Cuisinart quit working all together and I had to purchase a new food processor - I looked into other brands. I ended up with a Breville Food Processor and I LOVE it.
I found myself actually looking for recipes that would allow me to use my new food processor. The very first thing that I used my new Breville Food Processor for was to slice the potatoes for these Herb Potato Stacks. These were really tasty and they were super easy to put together - thanks to my new kitchen equipment.
Herb Potato Stacks
¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1 clove garlic, minced
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
4 small white or Yukon gold potatoes
¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Slice potatoes as thin as possible in food processor or using a mandolin.
Melt butter and add fresh herbs, garlic and salt.
Brush muffin tin with butter mixture. Layer potatoes in muffin cups, brushing with butter mixture between each layer. Fill to the top of cups.
Sprinkle parmesan over each potato stack.
Bake 40 minutes at 375.
Remove from pan and serve.
Admittedly I use my kitchen equipment more than the average cook but I still expect it to hold up to my high standards. If you are in the market for a new food processor - message me and I will give you all the details about my new Breville. I love it and I'm sure that you will too.
