Recipe by Tristin Rieken, Fresh Flavorful


  • 2 pounds potatoes, about 4-6 yukon gold

  • ½ cup butter

  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme – or 1 teaspoon dried 

  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • ½ medium white onion

  • 1 cup grated Samish Bay medium white cheddar cheese

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Melt butter then add herbs and garlic.
  • Wash potatoes and scrub well but do not peel. Thinly slice potatoes 1/8” thick. Add sliced potatoes to a large bowl.
  • Grate onion and add to potatoes then stir in melted butter mixture. Reserve ¼ cup grated cheddar and add remaining to the potato mixture with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Stir to coat. 
  • Fill muffin tin holes evenly with potato mixture and press down slightly to compact each stack. Sprinkle with reserved cheese. 
  • Cover tightly with foil and bake, covered, in preheated 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for 30 minutes.
  • Remove foil and continue baking, uncovered, until golden brown, 15-20 minutes longer.
  • Remove from oven and immediately season with coarse salt. Cool slightly then remove, using a butter knife to lift the potato stacks out.
  • Garnish with more fresh thyme. Serve warm or at room temperature. These potato stacks are perfect for breakfast, brunch, dinner or as an appetizer!
