Who doesn’t love a potato?

Potatoes are so versatile and absolutely delicious. But this isn’t news to you I am sure! For Christmas, I got a Microplane Slicer (not an affiliate link). I have always been a bit scared of mandolines so thought this was a better place to start! Since getting the slicer I knew I wanted to use it to make a potato stack dish. 

What if you don’t have a slicer or mandoline?

Don’t panic, if you don’t have a slicer of mandoline you can still make these Potato & Thyme Stacks! If you have a food processor, you may have a slicer attachment. Otherwise, you can just use a knife. This will obviously take some time but it can definitely be done. Try to slice the potatoes as evenly as you can. You can always cut the potatoes slightly thicker and cook them for a bit longer. Just make sure they are completely cooked before serving. 

A side dish that is a little bit special 

These Potato & Thyme Stacks do take a little bit more time than mash for example, but they are worth the extra effort. They are a really simple idea, but look a bit fancier which is always nice! 

What to serve these Potato & Thyme Stacks with

You can serve these with so many different meals. I like to have them with one of my all time favourite meals; pork loin, Brussel Sprouts with Bacon & Garlic and Roasted Parmesan Tenderstem Broccoli. But the combinations are endless. I think these would make a great alternative potato side for a roast. They would also be a great option if you were hosting a dinner party.
