Confession: I’m more than obsessed with potatoes. The latest guilty pleasure is Air Fryer French Fries coming in at just 96 calories and using one teaspoon of oil! Crispy and golden ~ if you’re looking for a reason to buy an air fryer, this is it. 

Around here we like potatoes mashed, in salad, au gratin and even a cheesy, Yukon gold/sweet potato combo.

Muffin Tin Potato Stacks with their cheesy goodness will be the food highlight your family and guests alike will be talking about long after they’re gone.

What’s in these Muffin Tin Potato Stacks?

  • potatoes (Yukon Gold used; long narrow russets also work well)
  • butter
  • olive oil
  • fresh thyme
  • lemon zest
  • garlic clove
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • gouda cheese
  • cooking spray

How to make Muffin Tin Potato Stacks:

Spray a standard size (12 count) muffin tin with cooking spray then set it aside.

Preheat the oven to 400° then add the butter, olive oil, thyme, lemon zest, grated garlic, salt and pepper to a medium size bowl. Microwave 30 seconds or until the butter is just melted then give it a good stir.

Peel and thinly slice the potatoes then add them to the bowl, gently tossing to coat.

Begin stacking the potatoes into the muffin cups adding a little cheese between the layers finishing with potatoes. Fill to the top; the potatoes will shrink down. Discard the rest of the butter in the bowl.

Using your fingers or the back of a teaspoon gently press down on each stack then add a light sprinkle of salt and fresh cracked pepper to the top of each. Bake 30-45 minutes or until the potatoes are tender with golden, crispy brown edges.

Remove the potatoes from the oven then let them rest in the pan 2-3 minutes before carefully transferring them to a plate. Optional: garnish with a few thyme leaves.

      Mary ~ something tells me we share a love of potatoes AND cheese ~ and maybe even more in common. The Au Gratin Potatoes on the blog are also a favorite of mine (sometimes we just need to blow our own horns!)

      Hi Melissa – using one pound of potatoes, you’ll get 8-10 stacks, depending on the thickness of your slices and how high you stack. Thanks for stopping by – Bernie.
