Notes

Tips for making these potato stacks
 
  • Use a mandoline to get the perfectly thin slices of potatoes.
  • If you can, use both russert potatoes and red potatoes to make these potato stack
  • If you don't want to use a muffin tray, line the stacks up in a square casserole dish. Your cook time will be different. It will take a little longer to cook them, but, they will taste just as great.
  • If using Parmesan cheese, try getting a Parmesan block. Grate it and then top it on the potato stack. Freshly grated Parmesan cheese will be crispier and more delicious.
  • I recommend using fresh herbs for this potato stack. If you have unused fresh herbs, you can always use it in compound butter recipe.
  • You can refrigerate the potato stack, not freeze them. Make sure you keep them stacked and use a glass casserole dish to refrigerate them. Use within 2 days of making them.
  • If you don't want to use milk, use coconut milk or heavy cream.
