Browned Butter Sweet Potato Stacks
Author: A Cooking Light recipe
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 12 servings
Nutty browned butter, crispy fried sage, salty parmesan cheese and sweet potato slices. The delicious components making the perfect holiday side dish!
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons fresh sage leaves
  • 3 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1-1/2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 4 small), peeled and cut into 1/4-in.-thick rounds
  • Cooking spray
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Place butter in small skillet over medium-high. When butter starts to bubble, add crushed garlic and sage leaves. Reduce heat and cook until butter begins to brown, swirling the pan occasionally. Watch carefully as you do not want it to burn. Remove leaves and cloves from butter and place on a paper lined plate. Reserve butter and toss (or eat!) garlic cloves.
  3. Spray 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Place two rounds of sweet potato into bottom of each cup. Sprinkle evenly with parmesan cheese (1/8 cup). Layer with two more rounds of sweet potato. Drizzle each potato cup with 1 teaspoon browned butter. Cover muffin tin tightly with aluminium foil and place in oven. Bake for 25 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and turn broiler on high. Sprinkle potato rounds evenly with remaining parmesan cheese. Place under broiler and broil until bubbly and lightly browned. About 2 minutes.
  5. Transfer to serving platter and top with fried sage.
You may want to make extra crispy fried sage! Take one bite and I promise you will be hooked, so make sure you make enough to keep you satisfied!

    Why in muffin tins ?

      Hi Janice, these are cooked in muffin tins to keep the stacks from tipping over when baking. With butter and cheese as part of the ingredients, they will slip off of each other.
