Potatoes are the perfect canvas for flavors. They absorb the melted butter and parmesan, creating a rich, savory bite. But these stacks aren’t just about flavor. They’re about texture too. Crispy edges, creamy centers, and that satisfying crunch of parmesan create a textural symphony.

Tip: Use a mandoline slicer to cut the potatoes into thin, even slices. This ensures that they cook evenly and get perfectly crispy.

Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, these stacks strike the perfect balance. They’re proof that with the right ingredients and a little love, potatoes can be transformed into a show-stopping dish.

Tip: Stack the potato slices in muffin cups. This helps them hold their shape while cooking.
