Cheesy Potato Stacks made their way onto my breakfast plate the other day.  Who doesn’t want to start the day with stacked potatoes with crispy edges? WHOOOO?!!! 

If you’re having some fancy holiday dinner, I’m pretty sure they’d fit right in there too.

Can you imagine these on a Thanksgiving plate with turkey and a little bit of gravy? I wouldn’t be mad if a little bit of cranberry sauce got onto my fork while tasting.

For now, we just eat them on a weekday morning because they’re that easy to make and I’m going through a weird egg & potato kick right now. Consider yourself warned.

Cheesy Potato Stacks

makes 12

serves 4-6

recipe adapted from Williams-Sonoma

  • 3 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme, plus whole leaves for garnish
  • kosher salt & cracked pepper
  • 7-8 Yukon gold potatoes (about 2 lbs). peeled and sliced 1/16 inch thick
  • 1 cup shredded sharp white cheddar

Preheat an oven to 375°F   Spray 12 standard muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk together the butter, olive oil, chopped thyme, kosher salt, and pepper. Add the potato slices and toss to coat evenly.

Layer the two potato slices into each of the prepared muffin cups, add a few shreds of cheese and layer the tops with the remaining potatoes, filling each cup. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on the top of each stack, and season with salt, pepper, and reserved thyme.  Bake until the edges and tops are golden brown and the centers are tender, 45 to 55 minutes. Let the potato stacks rest for 3 to 5 minutes, then carefully remove them with a small offset spatula. Serve immediately.

    How very clever and what a delightful presentation! Bet this would work with sweet potatoes too…

    Just made these tonight and they are amazing! This would be perfect side dish.

    Made these tonight, so delicious. I ended up using a muffin tin with only 6 holes, and I would say it was probably not my best idea, but the potatoes still turned out delicious (even though they’re more piles than stacks 😀 ). I love the idea of creating potato stacks to serve during brunch or a fancy dinner.
