Sweet Potato Stacks

These tasty Sweet Potato Stacks make use of a few simple ingredients to great effect: Thin sweet potato slices are layered with butter, thyme and garlic, and a pinch of salt and black pepper, then baked until crispy on the edges and tender in the center. The recipe yields a crowd-serving portion perfect for gatherings or parties.

Tips. Choose medium-sized potatoes that are about the width of your muffin pan. If you have a mandoline, this is the time to use it. This simple kitchen tool makes fast work of sweet potato slicing and creates even thin slices, though you could use a sharp chef’s knife. Before stacking the layers in the muffin pan, make sure all the slices are evenly coated with the butter, garlic, and thyme.  

To make the Sweet Potato Stacks, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Sweet Potato Stacks

1

Preheat oven and prepare muffin pan

5

Preheat the oven to 400 °F, and grease a 12-cup muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray or brush with cooking oil.

Melt butter

1

In the microwave or on the stovetop, melt 4 tablespoons unsalted butter.

Add garlic

1

Whisk in 2 grated garlic cloves and set aside to cool slightly.

Slice sweet potatoes

Using a mandolin or very sharp knife, slice 2 pounds sweet potatoes into 1/16-inch-thick slices. You can peel the sweet potatoes first if you wish, but it's not necessary.

Place sweet potato slices in a large mixing bowl and pour the garlic butter over the top. Add 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper.

Toss to coat well

1

Gently toss everything together, making sure each sweet potato slice is well coated.

7

Prepare sweet potato stacks

2

Layer the sliced sweet potatoes into a stack in the prepared muffin pan, filling each cup all the way up to the top or slightly higher. Sprinkle a few thyme leaves over the top.

8

Bake

30

Bake, uncovered, until the sweet potatoes are golden brown on top and tender, about 30-40 minutes.

9

Cool slightly

5

Allow the sweet potato stacks to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing.

10

Serve

Serve warm and enjoy!
