Giveaway is at the bottom of this post.
I first saw a version of these yummy potato stacks on Pinterest. Searching for the source led me to Martha Stewart… of course! Click Here to see the original stacks and recipe.
They looked delicious but honestly a little plain. I though I could improve them… I could best Martha by putting a StoneGable spin on her own recipe! Thrilling!
These cheesy, creamy, crispy, buttery potatoes are scrumptious and they are so cute!!!!! I have made them 5 times in the last 2 weeks… they are that good! Hope you give my version a try!

Muffin Tin Onion Gruyere Potato Stacks

5 baking potatoes
2 onions, chopped
6 TBS butter
1 1/2 cups grated cheese, Gruyere or cheddar
kosher salt
freshly ground pepper
heavy cream or half and half
cooking spray
thyme sprigs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Thinly slice raw potatoes. I use a Mandoline but they can be carefully hand sliced into thin even slices. Set aside.
Melt butter (about 4 TBS) in a large skillet and saute onion over a low heat until translucent and slightly golden. Add 2-4 TBS butter in the pan and melt the butter. Set aside.

Grate cheese. Gruyere is my favorite but cheddar works great too! Set aside.

Spray all twelve muffin cups of a regular size muffin pan.

Add 1 slice of potato to the bottom of each muffin cup. Salt and pepper. Add 1 more slice of potato. Top each potato evenly with 1/2 TBS onion and butter. Add 2 more potato slices. Sprinkle 1/2 TBS grated cheese evenly over potatoes. Add 1 more potato slice and salt and pepper. Add 1 more potato slice and evenly add  1/2TBS of onion and butter. Add 1 or 2 potato slices and  top evenly with remaining cheese.

Pour 1 TBS cream over each potato stack. Do this for each stack.

Bake for 35 minutes until potatoes are tender. Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes.

Run a sharp knife around the edges of each muffin cup and pop each stack out with a fork.

Garnish with thyme.

    This is such a good take on scalloped potatoes. I think it will be much more appealing since the stacks would be easy to serve. You could also transport to a potluck dinner, warm up and then move to a platter.

    Oh my! Those looks delicious. Gosh, they’d be good for so many occasions. I could probably eat a whole pan of them. Yum. Thanks for the printable recipe.
    Have a great weekend.

    Yvonne, you are killing me! How can I look at this and NOT make my printer print this out? Seriously I render myself helpless and powerless against something this decadently delicious!!!!!! Does your family know how lucky they are!!! WOW This I must make:)

  4. says

    Youpotato stacks looks super scrumptious, Yvonne!! I’ll definately be giving them a try. Don’t we just love our own, little individual serving, too? It makes it so special!!!

  5. says

    Oh Yvonne, you have me laughing and hungry! We make these almost exactly the same way and, like you, have made ours at least 3 or 4 times in the past couple of weeks! I think potatoes are my favorite food!

    Your pictures are so pretty!

    I am making the potato stackes along with your scallop recipe for my daughter’s 21 birthday dinner. I love your recipes and decorating ideas.

  7. says

    This looks delicious – I am going to have to try out the recipe! I just stumbled across your lovely blog & have signed up as your latest follower. I have just been enjoying myself going through some of your older posts I look forward to popping back for some more inspiration!

    These look amazing. I will have to try them have company coming in for four days over Thanksgiving and am not much of a cook so need all the help I can get.

  9. says

    I had the exact same thought…why not make it like I make my traditional french scalloped potatoes. Onion, Gruyere and a bit of cream. Just had to laugh, great minds. Wonder why Martha didn’t think of this?? LOL

  10. Ellie says

    This recipe is amazing – I have to try it! But I’m a little confused about the 1/2 onion and butter that keeps being mentioned> 1/2 of what…teaspoon, tablespoon? Sorry to bo dense but I want to get this deliciousness right.

  11. Mary says

    Great taste! Served for Christmas dinner. I’ll need to double up on the cooking spray next time as I struggled getting them out of the tin. But when I flipped them right-side up they still looked good. Nice way to make these seem more special for a holiday meal!

  12. Daria says

    I made these last night and they were great! I didn’t have Gruyere, so I used Sargento Italian cheese blend. Also, I forgot to buy Heavy Cream so I didn’t use any, but will try next time. I used a medium onion and held some out for another part of our dinner so I was short on onions. I can’t wait to make these again.
