Duck Fat Domino Potatoes Recipe

Last Update: September 28, 2022

Domino potatoes—first sliced into thin rectangles, then baked—achieve the perfect balance of golden crisp edges and buttery creamy centers. Drenching each slice in Epic’s rich, cage-free duck fat adds unbeatable flavor, especially when paired with garlic, fresh thyme, and flakey sea salt. 

Duck Fat Domino Potatoes

Yield: 8 servings
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 15 minutes


6 to 8 russet potatoes, peeled
1 cup duck fat, melted
3 tablespoons large-flake sea salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 bunch thyme, leaves removed
3 cloves garlic, sliced


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Trim potatoes into perfect rectangles by removing their round edges. Then, using a mandoline slicer, shave thin slices off to create long rectangles.

Toss slices in a large bowl with duck fat, salt, pepper, thyme leaves, and sliced garlic. Arrange slices upright in an 8×8-inch baking dish, tightly filling the whole dish. Roast in oven about 1 hour, until tops are golden and crispy and potatoes are cooked through. Sprinkle with extra thyme leaves and salt to serve.
