I’ve always had a soft spot for potatoes and have been on the lookout for easy and tasty recipes to cook them. When I came across these Parmesan Potato Stacks, I knew I had to give them a shot at some point because they’re super easy to make and look really impressive. I liked everything about the recipe and decided to add some garlic powder to give it an extra kick of flavor.
These potato stacks are perfect as a side dish or appetizer that your family and guests will absolutely love. They’re bursting with flavor thanks to the thyme, garlic, and Parmesan, which I personally enjoy combining with potatoes. But if you’re not a fan of thyme, feel free to use other herbs like rosemary, oregano, or basil that you prefer.
Here’s a neat trick for slicing the potatoes into thin pieces: try using a mandoline slicer. It makes the process quicker and prevents the potatoes from turning brown. So, you can whip up these Parmesan potato stacks with ease and enjoy their delightful taste and appealing appearance.
How to make Parmesan Potato Stacks
To begin, you’ll want to preheat your oven to a temperature of 375°F (190°C). Take 12 muffin cups and generously butter them. Set them aside for now.
Next, take your potato slices and place them in a spacious bowl. Add the melted butter, Parmesan cheese, thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper to the bowl. Give everything a good toss, ensuring that each slice is thoroughly coated with the flavorful mixture.
Now, it’s time to assemble the potato stacks. Take the coated slices and layer them one on top of another, creating neat and compact stacks. Place these stacks into the previously prepared muffin cups. As a final touch, sprinkle a pinch of freshly ground black pepper over the stacks, adding an extra burst of flavor.
Allow them to bake until the edges and tops of the potato stacks turn a glorious golden brown, and the centers become tender. This should take approximately 55 minutes to 1 hour, depending on your oven’s heat distribution and the desired level of crispiness.
Carefully remove the muffin cups from the oven. Let them rest for about 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to settle and the stacks to firm up slightly. Take the potato stacks out of the muffin cups, and for an elegant finishing touch, garnish them with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and a sprig of fresh thyme.
Now, you can savor the mouthwatering aroma and indulge in the delectable Parmesan potato stacks that you’ve lovingly prepared. They’re bound to impress with their crispy exterior, tender interior, and the delightful combination of flavors from the Parmesan, thyme, and garlic. Hope you will try them out.
