Garlic & Cheese Potato “Stacks”

For Sunday dinner I made a nice Herb & Garlic Pork Tenderloin and had to decide what I wanted to make to have with it alongside the requisite vegetable.  I knew I wanted to make some sort of potato side dish but I couldn’t decide on what.  I thought about scalloped potatoes, I thought about mashed potatoes but I wanted to do something different. I ended up making these potato “stacks,” loosely based on different versions I saw online.  Because the potatoes are sliced so thin they cook relatively fast and you end up with a garlicky, cheesy stack of delicious potatoes that look way fancier than how easy they are to make.


I hope you enjoy the recipe!

Cheesy Roasted Potato Slices

I have made this recipe on the BBQ using either aluminum foil or one of those BBQ cooking sheets when it came to the cheese part.  They work out just as well in the oven.

They are nice and crispy and cheesy on the outside the soft and delicious on the inside… a great side for any meal! The fact that they are quick and easy to make is just a bonus!

Instapot Cheesy Potatoes

I couldn’t figure out what to call these potatoes, other than Cheesy.  They came out different than I expected but one, I am still experimenting and two, they were delicious no matter what the consistency was lol.

These potatoes are sort of mashed, sort of cubed and sort of scalloped lol… so how do I pick which of these to label them?  I don’t… I just post the recipe as I made it and reiterate that they were delicious!

While the potatoes might not make for the nicest pictures, after taking his first mouthful of them Chris commented on how good they tasted!

Salt & Vinegar Potatoes

When Chris and I were watching Amazing Race Canada the other night they were in P.E.I. One of the challenges was to unscramble the words of a menu.  Salt & vinegar French fries was one of the scrambled words.  The fries sounded interesting but I wondered what they would taste like as roasted potatoes… I have to say…. they were absolutely delicious!

I read different versions of the French fries recipe and came up with this recipe for roasted salt and vinegar potatoes!

I was surprised by how much the vinegar flavour came through after roasting the potatoes.  They ended up being very flavourful with a crispy outside and soft inside… definitely one of those kitchen “experiments” I will be making over and over again!

Garlic “Smashed” Potatoes


These potatoes are a favourite in our household.  Garlic, cheese, dill, sour cream, yum!  The biggest plus is that with these mashed/smashed potatoes, you don’t even have to peel them!

Garlic “Smashed” Potatoes are great to make ahead, freeze and reheat when it’s time for the big meal! I make these ahead of time for Thanksgiving and Christmas every year!
