    Russet or baking potatoes are the traditional potato for this recipe, I believe, but Yukon Golds show up in many recipes. I've only made them once in my life and don't know why it was only once. It's a lovely, rich, French dish, definitely dinner party worthy.

      The French Laundry cookbook uses Yukon Gold. It's part of the "Yabba Dabba Doo" recipe.

        You can really use any potato for Pommes Anna but i find that the waxy varieties brown too quickly are too sweet and do not have a good crispness to them.
        I prefer Kennebecs, White Rose, or Idahos(russet).
