Ingredients

  • Potatoes: For the best results, use starchy potatoes like Russet or Yukon Gold. When roasted, these will get super crispy on the edges and stay soft and fluffy in the middle.
  • Butter: Use salted butter. If you use unsalted, add in a pinch of salt. The butter is melted before being tossed with the potato slices.
  • Garlic: Use fresh garlic for the best flavor. Mince it finely before adding to the butter.
  • Parmesan: Use freshly grated parmesan rather than pre grated for the best flavor and texture.
  • Thyme: A few fresh thyme leaves add a great earthy taste to each bite.

Frequently Asked Questions

How thickly should you slice the potatoes?

You don’t want to cut the potatoes too thinly for this recipe, so that you get those nice fluffy middles. They should be about 1/8 inch thick, and I would suggest you cut them by hand rather than with a mandolin.

Can you make potato stacks without a muffin tin?

The muffin helps to keep the potato stacks stable as they roast. You can stack them on a baking sheet, but if your potato slices aren’t perfectly flat, they are likely to slide off. Be sure to grease the tin well before stacking in the sliced potatoes so that they are easy to remove.

Can you make them ahead of time?

I don’t recommend that you slice the potatoes too far ahead of time as they can start to brown. Once cooked, the stacks will keep well in the fridge for 2 to 3 days and can be reheated in the oven at 260F for 10 to 15 minutes til heated through.

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • Don’t slice the potatoes too thinly or you won’t get those fluffy middles.
  • I found that one minced garlic clove gave a great final flavor. Feel free to add another if you are a garlic lover. For a milder garlic flavor you can use a teaspoon of garlic powder.
  • Grease your muffin tin well with oil before adding the sliced potatoes.
  • Toss the potato slices really well with the other ingredients so that they are well coated.
  • Any garlic parmesan mixture left in your mixing bowl should be spooned on top of the stacks before roasting.
