Muffin-Pan Potato Gratins

It's been a real lazy weekend, and I was catching up on the pile of cookbooks and magazines in the pile near the couch. So I thought I would do the Great Cooking Magazine Challenge that Suzy from Kitchen Bouquet did a while back! Good motivation. I found a really easy recipe for potatoes in the new issue of Martha Stewart's Everyday Food that looked amazing! And did I mention easy? Really easy!



These were FANTASTIC! I used 1% milk instead of cream, because that's all I had and I don't think it made a bit of difference. The bottom sort of stuck to the nonstick pan, of course it did, that's my luck, so I ended up just re-stacking them with the top pieces that had browned. These "stackers" would be great for company or just as a side for the family! We really enjoyed these. A really great spur of the moment recipe that I will definitely be making again!

Printable Recipe

2 medium-sized Russet Potatoes, very thinly sliced
6 tablespoons heavy cream (I used 1% milk)
coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 400°.

Lightly coat 6 standard muffin cups with unsalted butter. Place two slices of potato in each cup and season with salt and pepper. Continue to add potato slices, seasoning after a few slices, until the cups are filled. Pour 1 tablespoon heavy cream over each cup. Bake until potatoes are golden brown ad tender when pierced with a knife, about 30-35 minutes. Run a knife around each gratin. Place a baking sheet on top of the pan and invert to release the gratins. Flip right side up and serve.

  1. These sound awfully easy. I wonder how they'd be with goat's milk. I'm looking for a side for a luncheon with a lactose intolerant guest.

  12. Those look fun and make such a nice presentation. You must have a tool to get your potatoes sliced so thin.

    As soon as I finish my outdoor cleanup I am going to try some magazine challenges - I have quite a stack that I haven't gotten to yet :)

  13. That sure is easy! And delicious too. I would enjoy munching on them right now instead of looking at the lone Butterfinger candy bar that I set aside from the candy bowl and am determined not to open (I hope) :)

  35. Such a great idea! I'm going to remember this for the holidays! Too bad your nonstick pans weren't. Maybe a little melted butter would help? I'll find out ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love this...I will be trying it...wonder if a little parchment in the bottom of the muffin tins would solve the problem???
    Thanks so much for visiting with me!!!

    1. Great idea to add the Parmesan, I'll do that next time! Thanks!

  46. I made these tonight! They were delicious. I mixed some pepper, seasoning salt, and garlic powder together and put that on every couple layers of potato. Turned out great. A little hard to get out of the pan, but worth the effort. Next time I will have to make at least twice as much as the family scarfed them up:) Thanks!

    1. They are hard to get out of the pan, but they are so good! I may try little parchment circles on the bottom next time, maybe that will help. Love the idea of the seasoning between the layers, sounds great, thanks!
