Spud Stacks

I found a fun potato recipe that would be a great side
for any meal.

Just had to share it .... plus I use any excuse I can get to warm up the oven
these sooooo cold days!!!

2-3 large Yukon Gold or Russet potatoes - peeled and sliced very thin 
1 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. sea salt
Fresh ground pepper
1/2 Cup Cheese (I used Asiago) plus some for sprinkling on top.

Grease muffin tins or small ramekins
Melt butter with oil and seasonings - stir in the grated cheese
Place sliced potatoes in a bowl and pour the melted butter mixture overtop.
With hands gently work the potatoes and butter to coat slices.
Stack the potato slices into a greased muffin tin or greased ramekins - this recipe made 4 stacks but you could triple the recipe and make 12 stacks to fit your muffin tin.
Sprinkle more cheese on top and bake at 375F for 40-50 minutes or until nicely browned and crispy.
Allow them to set for 5 minutes and then gently remove from tins with a spoon.

Till next time ............ how are keeping warm these days (or maybe you are somewhere warm and wonderful). I wonder if the Robins will arrive on time next week - Spring must be just around the corner - right?


  1. I'm going to try this. Maybe today. Looks yummy!

  2. These look real tasty, Rosella!
    Make some tea and stay warm! Spring is on it's way.

  3. This is such a fun way to serve potatoes, Rosella! Thank you for sharing the recipe! I hate to share this but we are already having Spring here. Even the daffodils came and the tulips will come early...
    Stay warm...

  4. Oh boy! Those look fantastic. Pinning...

    How am I staying warm? Usually, I am covered with a blanket beside the heater. It has been frigid. Trying not to bake too often, though.

    1. Meant to return and tell you that these were just yummy. I enjoyed having a different way of preparing potatoes and it did make a fun presentation. I'll be doing it again!

  5. What a fun idea for a party. I have some cute ramekins that would be perfect for this recipe. I love potato recipes anyway.

  6. I can taste those. We love spuds...any way!

  7. This looks like something I could make for supper as my side dish. Yummy!

  8. Those look so yummy, Rosella!

  9. You had me at potatoes, I love em. I bet these were tasty.

  10. What a great idea !!! we also LOVE potatoes too :) will be making these for sure--this would be great when you have a few extra people popping in really great side dish love it :)

  11. I love these single serving potato stacks---perfect for company! I made a galette with thyme for dinner last night---and will have to use your technique and add some Asiago cheese next time. What delicious potatoes!
