Mr. Food: Parmesan Potato Stacks

What You’ll Need

  • 3 pounds (4 to 5) medium potatoes, sliced into 1/8-inch thick slices
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine potato slices, butter, salt, and pepper; toss gently until evenly coated. Stack potato slices to the top in each muffin cup.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine heavy cream, garlic, rosemary, and nutmeg and heat just until hot. Pour cream over each potato stack, filling each cup 3/4 full. Sprinkle evenly with Parmesan cheese.
  4. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until potatoes are golden brown on top. Let sit 5 minutes, then serve immediately.


  • We’ve found that the best way to see if the potatoes are tender is to insert a knife gently into a stack.
