Learn how to make potatoes in muffin tins for a delicious crispy potato stack that everyone will clamor for. Add your favorite cheese and spices to create a side dish for a special meal.
Thinly sliced potatoes cooked in the oven with butter and olive oil makes the most delicious crispy potatoes and they look fancy too.
How to Make Potatoes in Muffin Tins
You can try hand slicing the potatoes but a cheap mandoline comes in so handy for creating very thin slices for a recipe like this.
In addition to butter and olive oil, I added fresh rosemary, garlic, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.
Everything gets tossed together in a large bowl.
Then you can strategically stack them in a muffin pan. Find the larger slices first and build up from there. Then add a sprinkle of Parmesan and more chopped rosemary on top.
They get all golden brown and delicious in less than an hour. You can serve one or maybe two as a fancy side dish to any protein off the grill such as chicken, a juicy steak, or whatever you like to make for dinner.
They do get quite brown on the bottom but don't worry they don't taste the slightest bit burnt. They come out crispy, tender, and delicious.
