How To Make the Best Cheesy Potato Stacks in a Muffin Tin

Prep your oven and muffin tin – Preheat the oven to 400F and set aside a muffin tin.

Prepare the potatoes –  In a medium bowl mix together the thinly sliced potatoes and melted butter. 

Prepare the seasoning – In a small bowl combine the cheese, salt, pepper, garlic, thyme, and rosemary.

Transfer to muffin tin – Layer two slices of potato with about ½ teaspoon of the cheese mixture. Repeat until the stack is slightly taller than the muffin tin.

Bake the potato stacks – Loosely cover the tin with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown. 

Tips

  • If you let the potatoes cool in the muffin tin before removing them, it helps them keep their stacked shape better. It might be a little unstable if you take them out immediately as the cheese is still melty.
  • Make sure to buy potatoes that aren’t larger than your muffin tin! You want to make sure your sliced potatoes fit in the muffin tin.

FAQ’s

How do I slice the potatoes thinly?

Use a sharp chef’s knife and carefully slice them into thin rounds. If you’re not comfortable, an alternative is using a mandolin. 

Do I have to peel the potatoes?

I skip peeling the potatoes as the skin helps make the potato stacks crispy. Just be sure to wash and dry the potatoes thoroughly. If the potato is wet, you’ll end up steaming them inside the muffin tins and they won’t crisp up.

What if I don’t have fresh thyme and rosemary?

You can substitute dried herbs in place of fresh herbs. 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs can be substituted with 1 teaspoon of dried herbs.

What potatoes should I use?

I recommend and use russets for this stack potatoes recipe but you can also use Yukon potatoes if you don’t have russets available. 

What cheese should I used?

I love using either cheddar cheese or parmesan cheese. If you like them to be a bit more creamy, you can also add a tablespoon of heavy cream in each tin.
