Slice potatoes evenly
The most important thing you need to know about this recipe is that you will need to slice your potatoes as evenly as possible. This ensures that the potatoes cook through evenly. I recommend using a mandoline (I have this really basic one).
When using a mandoline, it’s very important to pay close attention so you don’t cut your finger or hand. Some mandolines may come with a safefty guard, but if not, you can purchase a safety glove to protect your hand while using it.
Set your mandoline to cut 2 mm slices of potatoes.
Bake stacks in a muffin tray
After slicing the potatoes thinly, we arrange them in a muffin tray. Having the potato stacks surrounded by the muffin tray helps to keep them from drying out, and also helps conduct the heat around them, cooking them through. I do not recommend using a sheet pan as your potatoes may not cook through the same and may dry out.
When selecting potatoes for this recipe, be sure to keep in mind that they must fit into the muffin tray. Large or wide potatoes will not be suitable for this recipe.
Think of this recipe as a great base option that you can play around with. Here are some options for you:
- potatoes– this recipe calls for white or yukon gold potatoes, however you can also swap for sweet potatoes; check out our sweet potato stacks!
- butter– you may swap the butter for coconut oil or olive oil but you’ll want to add in some extra salt to enhance the flavors
- herbs– go wild here and use your favorites. Some ideas: thyme, rosemary, oregano, sage, tarragon
- parmesan– swap for mozzarella, gouda, havarti, or your favorite cheese. Make sure to finely grate it so it melts evenly between the layers.
