Velvety potatoes with just a little bite are cooked slowly to absorb the cheesy creamy goodness of it all.
1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Butter a 12-cup muffin tin. Peel and finely dice the garlic and shallot. Place the diced garlic and shallot in a large bowl along with the half-and-half, 1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and thyme. Stir to combine and set aside.
2. Peel the potatoes and slice into 1/8″ thick rounds with a knife or mandoline. Stack about 7 to 8 potato slices into each muffin cup. The number of slices will vary depending on the thickness of the cut. Stack them tightly but not any higher than the muffin tin itself.
3. Next, spoon the half-and-half mixture into each muffin cup over the potato slices, being careful not to overflow. Loosely cover the muffin pan with foil and place in the oven. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove the foil and carefully top each muffin cup with the remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Place back in the oven without foil and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese is golden brown, the potatoes are tender, and the liquid has absorbed.
4. Allow to cool in the pan for an additional 5 minutes, then carefully remove and serve. Add additional thyme sprigs as garnish if desired.
While my hubby used frozen fries (which also work great), this recipe starts from scratch, because I have plenty of potatoes in the bin. The fries come out crisp without being fried while the seasoning adds a nice flavor with a little kick of spice. This recipe will please husbands, wives, kids … even in-laws!
Oh, this sauce. Drinkable.
This is a healthier version of the croquettes you know and love. Using leftover mashed potatoes they go together in a snap.
Serve Baked Potato Croquettes as an appetizer or as a side dish. Or they can even be a complete meal when served on a bed of Swiss chard, with a drizzle of Romesco sauce and a topping of crispy prosciutto!
