Take care to make the potato slices equally thin so they cook evenly. A mandoline or other vegetable slicer makes the job easier, but you can also do it by hand with a sharp knife.
Serve the tortiera with roast lamb, pork, or chicken.
To make fresh breadcrumbs, use a dense, day-old French or Italian country-style loaf. Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes and process in a food processor until fine.

My Fine Cooking arrived 2 days before a dinner party. I had originally planned to serve mashed potatoes with the rack of lamb. Since we love fennel, I decided to serve this recipe. I was able to prepare the ingredients several hours before dinner as well as baking it a couple of hours before serving. It was delicious and complemented the lamb beautifully.
