Garlic Potato Stacks

Can a potato dish be cute? Yes 🥹

These garlic potato stacks are beautiful little mounds of silky golden goodness and for me, are actually bitesize. But I probs wouldn’t recommend shoving the whole thing in. Take your time bab, you need to savour them x

I made these stacks as part of my ‘Cooking potatoes every single day til I physically implode’ series over on Instagram and this was day thirteen. I was on the verge of a breakdown at the thought of having to peel another potato so this was my saviour as no peeling was involved. Hallelulah. I didn’t even have to concentrate much as I used a mandolin to slice my spuds – which I highly recommend buying if you don’t own one. Although if you do use one, please use the finger guard as I’ve seen way too many accidents with these. It is good for getting even slices at speed though.

To create the little mountain shapes I used a fondant moulds but you can use muffin/cupcake trays if you don’t own one. Remember to wash the trays throughly so you don’t have garlic tasting cupcakes after your next sweet bake! Nobody wants that. Mmm garlic and vanilla cupcakes.

For those of you who want to take this dish to new heights of delishousness, there are two ways to do this. Both revolve around garlic. You’re probs thinking, wait, this dish already has garlic in it? You’re correct, it does. But is it confit garlic? Is it butter confit garlic? No. It’s not. Now, using normal garlic cloves will still produce an amazing potato dish but if you’ve got more time to prep or have a whole heap of garlic ready to be used, get confiting hunny!

If you’re all over a garlicky, thinly sliced spud, you definitely need to try my viral 15 Hour Potato recipe. Don’t let the 15 hour part scare you off because 12 of those hours are spent in the fridge, the hardest part is legit waiting the 12 hours. Or why not give my Pommes Anna recipe a go, which is basically the bigger version of my potato stacks, formed into a spiral shaped cake. Looks fancy, but is pretty straightforward.
