Creamy Boursin cheese and butter are all the flavor thinly sliced potatoes need. Sliced potatoes are layered with the rich Boursin herb butter and baked to a golden brown perfection. This is the perfect side for a party. Everyone loves them, they're super easy to make, and they keep well at room temperature.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and prepare two standard size muffin pan with baking spray. Feel free to make in batches if you only have one muffin pan.
Make a Boursin butter by mixing together the butter, Boursin cheese, salt, pepper, and thyme.
Using a mandoline slicer or a very sharp knife, cut the potatoes into very thin slices. Layer 3-4, depending on the diameter of each slice, potato slices in the bottom of the pan in a circular motion spreading out just slightly. Add 1 tsp of the Boursin butter on top of each potato pile. Top with an additional 3 to 4 potatoes slices and press down on each potato stack to press together. Add another 1/2 tsp of Boursin butter to the top of each stack.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until browned around the edges and golden brown across the top.
* Boursin cheese is a soft creamy cheese that is typically found in the specialty cheese section of the grocery store.
These are delicious hot but also stay really tasty at room temperature.
You can make the Boursin butter a couple of days in advance. Just remove from the fridge 4 hours before assembling potato stacks.
A mandoline makes the task of thinly slicing potatoes so much easier. I've linked to a great inexpensive one above.
