What Is a Potato Stack?
Potato stacks are roasted potatoes stacked up vertically, usually in a muffin tin. The potatoes are sliced thinly, arranged and stacked one over another to form a stack.
This Crispy Potato Stacks recipe is absolutely delicious, rivaling the crispy leaf potatoes recipe, except that they come in individual stacks, crispy tops and bottoms, and is probably my new favorite side dish now.
After baking and roasting in the oven, every layer of the potato stack has golden brown and crispy edges and bottoms. They are basically the best homemade potato chips baked in a muffin pan!

How to Make Potato Stacks?
Potato stacks are very easy to make at home with very simple ingredients. The basic steps are:

Tips on How to Cook Potato Stacks?
I am sure you ask “Do I need a mandolin slicer?” The answer is no. Here are my tips and techniques:
- Use Yukon gold potatoes with a diameter of about 2 1/2 inches in the center. This will make sure that the sliced potatoes fit well into a standard muffin pan.
- Do not peel the skin of the potatoes. After roasting, the skin becomes crispy.
- Slice the potatoes with a shark knife evenly. This will make sure that the potatoes cook evenly.
- You don’t need a mandolin slicer, unless you have a blade that slice to 1/16-inch in thickness.
What Herbs Do I Need?
For herbed potato stacks, I used rosemary and Italian parsley, infusing every slice of the potato with earthy and herb aromas.
This recipe is a winner and yields the most delicious potatoes you’ll ever make in your kitchen. They have the crispiest tops and bottoms, buttery and very tasty. Try my recipe and you will love it.

Can you use a different type of potato such as russett, as it’s all I have on hand right now.
Yes you can try!
Has anyone tried with a different type of potato?
such a nice easy way to be creative with potatoes. My parents absolutely loved them, can’t wait to make them again! Thanks so much :))
I’ve just made these as directed, they taste delicious but for some reason the stacks didn’t stay together. Do you have any suggestions that I could try so that the stacks stay together? They look so lovely on your site.
Make sure they are patted dry before stacking!
If you pat them dry before stacking won’t you be removing all that good stuff you just poured over them??
No it’s fine. Try the recipe.
I enjoy Pinterest very much, but it is such a mess. It takes forever to get to the recipe, if I see a recipe I like, I want the recipe right away. If I save it, I do not know how to retrieve it when I want to make it. I may not be the best computerized person, but get organized. Get it together please.
For recipe, you just click on Jump to Recipe button. My website is very organized.
Weird, I didn’t have any problem getting here with one single click. The problem is you and you horribly rude demands, not this lovely website. You owe an apology to Rasa for such appalling behavior.
Very rude comment. Nothing wrong with this site and getting to the recipe quickly. It is not the fault of the website nor Rasa that you seem to be computer illiterate. Be human, not an a**.
Most of us didn’t have a problem! Maybe you’re doing something wrong?!
Could they be made earlier, removed from the muffin tin, and be reheated for serving?
Yes you can.
Can I do this with can potatos
I don’t think so.
I love these potatoes! So yummy.
I would like to make them a day ahead for my Christmas party dinner. What temperature and for how long in the oven to reheat?
