  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • 6 tbsp salted butter melted
  • 2 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp McCormick garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp McCormick ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp McCormick nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp McCormick black pepper
  • 2 tbsp shredded parmesan or gruyere cheese plus more for garnish
  • Sea salt and parsley for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Peel and slice potatoes as thin as you can (about 1/10th of an inch thick). It is best to use a mandolin or if you don’t have one, try a potato peeler!
  • Add melted butter to a medium sized bowl.   
  • Whisk in brown sugar, garlic powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper and cheese.
  • Toss sweet potato slices in the liquid, coating well.
  • Using a 12-well muffin pan, begin to evenly divide and stack potatoes into 6 of the wells (this recipe only uses half of the muffin pan so you can make the garlic stacked potatoes in the remaining wells. However, if you want to make a full pan, double ingredients). You will want to stack them high since they shrink when baked.
  • Pour any remaining liquid over each potato stack. Optional: Add a little cheese on top of each stack then sprinkle with sea salt. 
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the outside of each stack is golden brown and the insides of the potatoes are tender (use a toothpick to check that it pierces very easily).  
  • Carefully remove stacks from wells, sprinkle with parsley and serve.



Tip: Make sure you slice your potatoes as thin as possible.  It will help with very even baking and tenderness in the potatoes.
