Creamy muffin tin potato stacks are simply delicious. Potato stacks with cream, butter, thyme, garlic and parmesan cheese are little winners. They can be par baked ahead and finished off in a hot oven when you’re ready to serve.

We love these as they’re so versatile and go with loads of different meals . They’re great for a breakfast buffet, fabulous for a lunch with grilled fish and a salad, and perfect for dinner, along with a grilled steak and mushrooms. Too easy!

This is a recipe that we have adapted from a favourite potato bake recipe and decided to make them into mini stacks. Let me say we were very happy with this adaptation. We didn’t have the larger Texas muffin tins but they would work a treat in them giving more depth to the potato stacks. Simply add a few more minutes to the cooking time.

What Potatoes to use

You need to use a potato variety that is starchy as they break down and soften when cooked and become nice and crunchy on the outside. Russet, Dutch creams or red delights or the dirt brushed sebago and red pontiacs all work well for potato stacks.
