Servings 9 servings


  • 3 russet potatoes thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 cups colby jack cheese or any other melty cheese, shredded
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary


  • Preheat your oven to 400°. Set aside a regular-sized muffin tin.
  • In a medium bowl combine the thinly sliced potatoes and melted butter. Stir to fully coat all of the potatoes.
  • In a small bowl combine the cheese, salt, pepper, garlic, thyme, and rosemary.
  • Layer two slices of potato with about ½ teaspoon of the cheese mixture. Repeat until the stack is slightly taller than the muffin tin.
  • 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.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
  • Use a spoon to scoop the potatoes out of the tin.


  • 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.
