Why you’ll love these crispy Parmesan potatoes

  • Guys… the garlic. Garlic makes these sweet potatoes so delicious. Your whole house will smell like delicious roasted garlic when you bake these.
  • The butter. I know this recipe calls for a lot of butter, but use it. It makes these stacks extra delicious and crispy.
  • These can be dipped in delicious homemade ranch or eaten as is. Either way, these crispy Parmesan sweet potato stacks will become a staple at your house.

Here’s what you’ll need to make it

  • Mandolin – If you don’t have a mandolin, you can use a very sharp knife to cut thin slices. I use a Tupperware brand mandolin which I invested in a few years ago and I’m so glad I did. It’s a quality piece of equipment and makes thinly slicing vegetables so quick and easy. And it makes the slices very even. A valuable thing with this recipe in particular.
  • Large Bowl – You want a bowl large enough where you can toss the potato slices in the melted butter mixture to get them well coated. Coating the slices well will provide that crispiness that you are looking for.
  • Frying Pan – To melt your butter and cook your garlic. As always, I recommend the HexClad brand. They are so good, and they usually have great sales this time of year!
  • Muffin Tin – This will keep your stacks nice and tidy.
  • Knife – Make sure you have a really sharp knife if you are slicing your potatoes with a knife.
  • Garlic Press – I use a garlic press for my garlic, but you can also mince it if you don’t have a garlic press. Again, if this is a kitchen tool you don’t have, I would recommend putting it on your Christmas list. It saves you so much time in the kitchen. I use a pampered chef garlic press. Worth the cost and then some! And it will last you forever.

Ingredients & substitutions

  • Salted butter – There is a whole stick of butter in this recipe. Don’t skimp on the butter. The potatoes won’t get as crispy as you want them. Just enjoy the recipe!
  • Garlic – I use fresh garlic because it provides so much good flavor. If you don’t want to use fresh garlic, however, you can use powdered.
  • Sweet Potatoes – Use a medium size so they aren’t wider than your muffin tin. You should cut them nice and thin, about 1/8 inch or thinner. The thinner the better! This is where having a mandolin comes in really handy.
  • Thyme – For this recipe I used dried thyme that I dried from my garden. If you are considering starting your gardening journey, I would highly recommend planting an herb garden. They are easy to manage and having fresh herbs really levels up your food game.
  • Parmesan cheese – I prefer to buy a block of Parmesan and grate it myself, but you can also buy pre-grated, quality Parmesan cheese.
  • Salt and Pepper – Because these are a staple in any recipe.
