Stacked Sweet Potatoes for #SundaySupper

Hi friends! We’re nearly a week into November and I’m already dreaming about Thanksgiving. Are you? We always have a big turkey, cheesy smashed potatoes and oyster dressing. Those are traditional. The rest of the meal however, is always changing. As we’ve welcomed more people into our family, they’ve brought their favorite dishes. I like trying new things too! Today for #SundaySupper “Best Holiday Side Dishes,” I’m sharing Stacked Sweet Potatoes.

I love sweet potatoes. Both the white, firmer sweet potatoes I used here and the orange sweet potatoes, most commonly used during the holidays. Did I mention, they’re drizzled in butter that’s been browned with garlic and sage leaves? That alone will make your house smell like Thanksgiving! Mmmm… browned butter… Excuse me, I may need to go lie down.

Ok, I’m back! Browned butter gets me every time! It’s swoon-worthy, seriously.

I’m sure I told you about the parmesan cheese. I did, right? No? Shame on me! Not only do these Stacked Sweet Potatoes have browned butter, they get topped with parmesan cheese too. Put under the broiler just before serving, the cheese gets crispy and bubbly on top! Who doesn’t love crispy cheese? It’s nearing a trifecta of happiness for me here. Browned butter, crispy cheese and sweet potatoes. Oh yeah!

Another great thing about these Stacked Sweet Potatoes? With just three potatoes, I had enough slices for 12 servings, plus leftover ends for roasting with more vegetables! That’s a win in my book! Try these yourself and see if they don’t become a family favorite!

Stacked Sweet Potatoes

A sweet and savory holiday side dish with perfect portions! These Stacked Sweet Potatoes will look stunning on your Thanksgiving table.

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 18 fresh sage leaves
  • 3 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1 1/3 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4 in rounds
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Lightly spray a 12 cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add sage and garlic.

Reduce heat and cook 5 minutes or until the butter is foamy and just starting to get brown bits on the bottom of the pan.

Swirl the pan occasionally so it doesn't brown too quickly and burn the sage!

Remove sage leaves and garlic from the butter. Place on a paper towel to drain.

When garlic is cool, dice it up into fine pieces

Immediately pour the butter into a small bowl to cool. Do not let it cool in the pan as it will continue to cook from the residual heat.

Place 2 potato slices in the bottom of each of the muffin cups. Make sure they are approximately the same size so your stacks look pretty!

Sprinkle the slices with 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon of the parmesan cheese and the diced garlic

Layer two more potato slices on top of the first two, so you have four potato slices per muffin cup.

Top each stack with 1/2 teaspoon of browned butter.

Cover with aluminum foil and place in the oven for 25-30 minutes, until fork tender.

Remove from the oven and discard the foil.

Drizzle the remaining browned butter evenly over the potatoes.

Top evenly with both remaining salt and Parmesan cheese.

Set your oven broiler to High

Broil potatoes 2-3 minutes or until the cheese melts and gets a bit crispy around the edges. Keep an eye on them! They can burn very quickly!

Remove pan from the oven and allow the stacks to cool a little.

Place potato stacks on a pretty platter and top with the reserved sage leaves!
