  • Regular muffin tin (12 hole)
  • Mixing bowl
  • Spoon


Muffin Tin Potatoes

  • 9 washed potatoes Note 1
  • 3 tbs dried onion Note 2
  • 1 tsp dried thyme Note 3
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • ½ cup cream
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese Note 4
  • 1 tsp salt and pepper

Mustard Yoghurt

  • ½ cup Greek yoghurt Note 5
  • 2 tbs Hot English mustard
  • cracked pepper to taste


Muffin Tin Potatoes

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C / 350-375°F / Gas Mark 4-5
  • Use a mandolin to thinly slice your potatoes
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl combine sliced potatoes, salt and pepper, thyme, rosemary, dried onion, ½ the parmesan cheese and cream. Use a spoon to thoroughly stir together.
  • Spray a 12 hole regular sized muffin pan with cooking oil
  • Pinch the creamy potato mix into stacks and place in the muffin tin. Repeat until all 12 holes have a 1 - 2 inch stack of the herbed potato mix
  • Place in the oven and cook for 15 mins.
  • Use an oven mit to remove the tin, sprinkle each potato stack with remaining parmesan cheese and cotinue to bake for another 20 - 30mins. Test they are ready by inserting a skewer into one potato stack, if it slides in without resistance, turn the oven off and let cool for 5 mins.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped parsley
  • Wait for the potatoes to cool down slightly. This will mean the cheese sets and use a spoon on the side of each potato stack to remove it from the tin.

Mustard Yoghurt

  • Combine Greek Yoghurt and Hot English Mustard in a small bowl and mix together until combined
  • Top with a sprinkle of cracked pepper



  • Note 1 I use regular washed potatoes for this recipe and leave the skins on. 
  • Note 2 Dried onion will be found in the herbs section of the supermarket. It bring the onion flavour, but saves time peeling and cutting a whole onion.
  • Note 3 An Australian tablespoon measures 20ml. An American one is slightly smaller at 14ml. 
  • Note 4 ½ of the Parmesan cheese goes INTO the potato mix as we season. The remaining ½ gets sprinkled over the stacks after they have cooked for 15 mins. 
  • Note 5 The Mustard Yoghurt is an optional addition. It is thick and creamy and a nice compliment to the potatoes. You can use djion mustard for a milder taste as hot English mustard (or American/Australian is hot, hot, hot!)
