I have always loved potatoes and tried to find various simple delicious recipes to cook them. When I ran over these Parmesan potato stacks on Pinterest I knew I will give them a try sooner or later, as they are so easy to prepare and  look quite impressive. I liked everything about the recipe and added some garlic powder for extra flavor.

These parmesan potato stacks make a great side dish or appetizer that your family and guests will definitely enjoy.  They are also very flavorful because of the thyme, garlic and parmesan which I always love to pair when cooking potatoes. If you don’t like thyme feel free to use any other herbs you prefer like rosemary, oregano or basil.

A good tip for cutting the potatoes in very thin slices is to use a  mandoline slicer as it goes faster and more evenly and in this way potatoes don’t oxidize.

    These potato stacks look amazing Ella! Not only are they gorgeous to look at, but I’ll bet they taste incredible too. It doesn’t hurt that I’m a huge potato lover. Your photos are gorgeous! 🙂

  5. I made something similar over the weekend—but a bigger version in a loaf pan. Needs a little tweaking but Bill loved it! Your individual servings are beautiful! And I’m going to have to try thyme instead of rosemary next time 🙂

  6. Jennette Ross Author says:

    What a classy presentation these potatoes would be at a party. Your tutorial video was great. They don’t look hard, even for a beginner cook to tackle. Nice job!

    I would like to know what the name of the oven you are using, because I find it really practical, I think you used to use competive oven before, but this one really inspired me.Do tell me.

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      I am using Boch series 8 oven..

  8. Debra Author says:

    Can these be backed and then reheated to serve?

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      sure.. this is what I did too:)

  9. Noreen Author says:

    I looooooved these, I made the full amount and froze some for later.
    I used them for a breakfast dish with bacon , eggs and roasted tomatoes as a weekend brunch dish, so good, so good.

  10. Christine Author says:

    Try these! Here is the reciepe

  11. Robert Huiberts Author says:

    We’ve tried these stack lately. They were really marvelous. Immediately one of our faves.

  12. Helena Author says:

    Wondeful side dish. Thank YOU!

  13. Rianne Author says:

    They look amazing! I am going to try to maine them next week.
    If I would reheat in an oven on 220 C (a long with some other dish) how long should it be in there?

  14. Tess Author says:

    It appears you peeled the potatoes first, correct? Has anyone tried these with the skins on?

  15. Rebekah Author says:

    I recently came across your blog but haven’t been able to try anything until last night, which was this recipe. It was absolutely delicious. My husband is not a fan of thyme (or rosemary) which is a bummer for me because I love those flavors. Is there another seasoning you would recommend for his half of the potatoes 🙂 . I am looking forward to making more of your dishes (making your cauliflower soup tonight). So many of them look delicious.

  16. I want to try these at my little bar and grill this weekend, but I’m wondering if anyone has made them and reheated/or kept them warm successfully? How? Also, I love the thyme, but I may use chives at the cafe for those that don’t like it. Has anyone tried chives or green onions with this dish?

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Chives or green onion will work nice too.. make the and reheat in the oven, will be just fine

  17. Miriam Author says:

    I would love to make a bunch of them and freeze them for a beautiful weeknight side. Would you freeze them fully-cooked, par-cooked or raw?

    Made them tonight – absolute raves from adults and kids alike.

  18. If made ahead, how would you reheat these?

    They are delicious and easy to make!

  19. eric Author says:

    Can we use russet potatoes instead of gold potatoes?

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Hello Eric.

      Sure, you can use russet potatoes too.

  20. Marion Author says:

    Made these today. So easy and so delicious

    I usually don’t like upside-down cakes – I don’t like mushy cakes after soaking fruit like strawberries. However, this looks very good!
