Creamy Garlic & Parmesan Baked Potato Stacks Recipe: An Easy New Way to Cook Potatoes

Mashed potatoes and baked potatoes are delicious, but there are so many ways to cook a potato. Smashed potatoes, Ukrainian potatoes, Amish potatoes and even German potatoes are in my recipe rotation. Now, this garlic and Parmesan potato stacks recipe has joined the club.

Muffin tins make this impressive potato recipe easy to assemble. (You can use regular-size muffin tins or jumbo muffin tins.) If you don't have fresh thyme, throw in some dried thyme or even rosemary to flavor the cream. This recipe can easily be doubled for larger families.

Serve these creamy, garlicy, cheesy stacked potatoes as a side dish with chicken, pork, lamb, beef or seafood. Next time I'm going to try making this recipe with Yukon gold potatoes. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 2 - 4


  • 2 medium russet potatoes, sliced about 1/8-inch thick
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 - 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (or to taste)
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • grated Parmesan cheese, to taste

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the cream, garlic, nutmeg and thyme into a saucepot. Season with black pepper, to taste. Bring to a gentle boil, stirring, then remove from heat. Set aside.
  2. Toss the potato slices in salt and pepper.
  3. Layer the potatoes in a muffin tin where they come just to the top of each muffin cup.
  4. Spoon the cream over each potato stack.
  5. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 30 minutes or until potatoes are golden and tender.
  7. Let the potatoes sit for about 5 minutes before removing. Sprinkle with more fresh thyme, if desired.
