Who doesn't like potatoes? For us, potatoes are the best side dish for almost anything. We have already started our Easter dinner menu-planning, and we chose a wonderful crispy and cheesy potato dish to go with our lamb! These Cheesy Potato Stacks are a delicious and elegant side dish perfectly complementing the Easter lamb! Rich and creamy, this potato dish is a real crowd pleaser and not too difficult to make! All you need is a small muffin tin!
4medium floury potatoessliced into 1 mm thick slices
100gmature Cheddar, Gruyere or Comtefinely grated
Preheat the oven to 200°C Fan. Lightly grease a 12 cup muffin tin.
Slice the potatoes into 1mm thick slices, using a sharp knife, a mandolin or a processor with a suitable attachment.
Melt the butter, add the crushed garlic and pour the garlic butter all over the sliced potatoes. Mix the potatoes thoroughly making sure that each slice is coated in butter. Layer the potatoes in the prepared muffin tin, alternating with grated cheese, stacking all the way to the top, as the stacks will sink when cooking. Finish with a cheese layer.
Cover the tin with foil and place in the oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove the foil and return the tin to the oven for another 25 minutes. Check the potatoes are tender by inserting a sharp knife. When cooked, taking care not to scratch the tin, run a knife around the edges of each stack to release them. Sprinkle with some coarse salt and serve as a side to your favourite dishes!
