Potatoes: I love Little Potato Company potatoes. I simply grab a bag of their creamers and it’s good to go. However, of course, go with your preferred brand. Just stick with a small potato for accurate baking time.

Slicing: Slice your potatoes thin. You can use a good sharp knife, on a mandolin or use your food processor. You want them about 1/8th to 1/16th in thickness.

Make Your Stacks:

  • First, make your sauce. Keep a close eye on it to avoid burning. Set it aside.
  • Next, add a small stack of sliced potatoes into each well of your muffin pan. Don’t stack them all the way up yet!
  • Sprinkle that stack with just a teaspoon of cheese and a teaspoon of sauce. Then, stack the remainder of the sliced potatoes on top.
  • Spoon the remainder of the sauce on top of it all. Cover the pan ( foil works best) and bake.
  • After baking for just 25 minutes, remove from the oven and uncover the pan. Sprinkle the tops with remaining cheese and bake an additional 10-15 minutes.
  • Let them sit in the pan for 5-8 minutes to cool before serving.

Topping ideas: Sour cream, cooked bacon bits or green onions.

Yield: 12 stacks

They look easy to make and portable as you said, but I think also fancy on the plate with the dollop of cream. Yummy!
