  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, garlic, and black pepper. Thinly slice the potatoes and add to the bowl. Toss to coat evenly.
  3. Brush the inside of a muffin tin with olive oil. Layer the potato slices into stacks in the prepared muffin cups, filling each one a ⅓ of the way. Sprinkle the top of each stack with sea salt.

Plate and top with a dollop of sour cream and chives.
