Soft and buttery potatoes with a golden brown crunch on the outside, this is side dish heaven! Crispy Butter Garlic Stacked Potatoes are a fresh take on your favorite comfort food, and they’re made with only 7 ingredients.


  • 6 small/medium Yukon gold potatoes (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Use a mandolin or a very sharp knife to slice the potatoes as thin as possible. Add the sliced potatoes, melted butter, garlic, thyme, parmesan, salt and pepper to a large bowl.

  2. Use your hands or a large spoon to toss the potatoes until they are evenly coated with all the ingredients. 

  3. Lightly grease a muffin tin and layer the potatoes in each muffin holder until they are stacked all the way to the top. They will shrink down as they cook. 

  4. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 20-25 minutes until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy. Run a knife around the edges of each stack to release them and serve immediately.
