  • 2 Medium-sized Russet potatoes, thinly sliced (peeled or unpeeled)
  • 3 Tb. Unsalted butter
  • 3 Tb. Olive oil
  • 1 tsp. Fresh rosemary, finely minced
  • 1 tsp. Fresh chives or parsley, finely minced (plus more for garnish before serving)
  • 2 cloves Garlic, peeled and finely minced
  • 1 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 c. Heavy cream (optional)
  • Maldon, flaky sea salt or other finishing salt (for sprinkling before serving)


  • Heat oven to 375 degrees and gather a 6-muffin non-stick pan (approx. 3" muffin size).
  • In a small saucepan, heat butter and olive oil over low heat. Remove from heat and add rosemary, chives, garlic, salt/pepper, and stir well. Allow it to sit for about 5 minutes so the flavors infuse.
  • Slice potatoes with a mandolin (about 1/16th thickness). If using a chef's knife, slice as thinly and uniformly as possible.
  • Using your hands, add a few larger potato slices to the butter mixture to coat them, then place directly into each muffin tin (I find it helpful to start with the larger slices on the bottom). Working in small batches, keep coating potatoes with the mixture and place into each tin until all the potatoes are used up. (Optional: pour a little bit of cream over each stack before baking).
  • Place in the oven and bake 40-45 minutes. Insert a toothpick or a knife into the middle of one stack and if it comes out clean and the edges are brown, the potatoes are ready.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool about 5 minutes before removing from pan. Sprinkle with finishing salt/herbs, and serve.


Note: I've indicated this recipe serves 6 - assuming 1 per person as a side dish.  But because they're so yummy, it's highly likely that folks may want one more, or a half piece more, so plan accordingly :)
