Giveaway is at the bottom of this post.
I first saw a version of these yummy potato stacks on Pinterest. Searching for the source led me to Martha Stewart... of course! Click Here to see the original stacks and recipe.
They looked delicious but honestly a little plain. I though I could improve them... I could best Martha by putting a StoneGable spin on her own recipe! Thrilling!
These cheesy, creamy, crispy, buttery potatoes are scrumptious and they are so cute!!!!! I have made them 5 times in the last 2 weeks... they are that good! Hope you give my version a try!
5 baking potatoes
2 onions, chopped
6 TBS butter
1 1/2 cups grated cheese, Gruyere or cheddar
freshly ground pepper
heavy cream or half and half
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Thinly slice raw potatoes. I use a Mandoline but they can be carefully hand sliced into thin even slices. Set aside.
Melt butter (about 4 TBS) in a large skillet and saute onion over a low heat until translucent and slightly golden. Add 2-4 TBS butter in the pan and melt the butter. Set aside.
Grate cheese. Gruyere is my favorite but cheddar works great too! Set aside.
Spray all twelve muffin cups of a regular size muffin pan.
Add 1 slice of potato to the bottom of each muffin cup. Salt and pepper. Add 1 more slice of potato. Top each potato evenly with 1/2 onion and butter. Add 2 more potato slices. Sprinkle 1/2 grated cheese evenly over potatoes. Add 1 more potato slice and salt and pepper. Add 1 more potato slice and evenly add the remaining 1/2 of onion and butter. Add 1 or 2 potato slices and top evenly with remaining cheese.
Pour 1 TBS cream over each potato stack.
Bake for 35 minutes until potatoes are tender. Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes.
Run a sharp knife around the edges of each muffin cup and pop each stack out with a fork.
Garnish with thyme.
