Impress your guests with these herb and garlic potato stacks! They are deceptively simple and SO incredibly tasty.
It’s the time of year again where you can’t help but think about the holidays.
And what’s the best part about the holidays? Well, family of course, but the second best part is absolutely, most definitely the food!!
I absolutely love the food traditions that happen during the holidays. We always do turkey, even though I don’t really think it’s anyone’s favorite. It’s just tradition, you know?
And every year I am in charge of the cranberry sauce. It’s my gig and it always has been 😉
One dish that I wouldn’t mind changing up is that boring old bowl of mashed potatoes. They’ve never really done much for me. So I thought it would be fun to make some fancy potatoes…stacked, slathered with herb and garlic butter, and sprinkled with parmesan.
Presenting: herb and garlic potato stacks!
Well I thought it was a fun concept worth revisiting for a third time. This time I decided to add some garlic and thyme to the mix, and boy was it a great idea!
Not only are these herb and garlic potato stacks SUPER tasty, but they are way easier then you’d expect.
How easy? Well let’s check out this video!
So the thing with these herb and garlic potato stacks is that you absolutely need them to all be the same thickness in order to cook properly. I have this really basic mandolin, and it works like a charm. Make sure to use the finger guard when your potato starts to get short, we don’t want anyone to slice themselves!
