Ingredients Related Tips

  • 6-8 Tbsp. of butter
  • 1 1/2 - 2 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh thyme
  • Small clove garlic, minced (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan and strip a good 2 or even 3 Tbsp. of Thyme into the melted butter. If you've opted for garlic, toss it in there as well.
  3. Slice your potatoes.
  4. Toss the sliced potatoes into a bowl, drizzle half the herb butter mixture in, and season generously with coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix thoroughly to coat everything with the herb butter.
  5. You saved half of the herb butter so you could grease your muffin tin. Do so now. Generously. If you have a non-stick muffin tin, this is an excellent time to use it.
  6. Lay a large piece of thyme in the center of each muffin-settin' spot and start layering your potatoes in a roughly circular manner, building up a tower of potato slices that spires a little bit above the fill line. These potato towers will fall a bit as they cook, so give them a little extra height — just make sure they are as tight and compact as possible.
  7. Cover the muffin tin with aluminum foil and pop into the oven. Set a timer for 30 minutes. Might as well clean up the mess you've made while this cooks.
  8. After 30 minutes, carefully remove the foil. Using a cake spatula or a butter knife and tongs, carefully lift out each stack, move it over to your baking sheet, and carefully turn it over so that the thyme leaf you initially placed on the bottom is now on the top. If you have leftover herb butter and aren't counting calories, you could drizzle that on these potato stacks at this time. Oh-so-carefully slide the baking sheet back into the oven and crank up the heat to 450 degrees. (Don't cover them this time; you want them to crisp up nice and good.)
  9. After about 15 minutes, your Potato Stacks will probably be ready. You don't want them to burn, but you do want some crispness on the top and sides. Once you remove them from the oven, you can serve them immediately or let them cool. They'll be tasty whether they're hot or cold.

I made these and they looked yummy. We cooked the first step, then refrigerated for @5 hours. When att Mkting to reheat them did not crisp up, even after 20 minutes at 450. Any suggestions?
