I love potatoes. So does my daughter. She’s one of the only people on the planet that will not eat pasta. So when I serve pasta she’ll just toss a potato into the oven to have a baked potato with her meal instead.
The other day we were talking about other ways to bake it, and she asked if I’ve ever sliced it before baking it. I remembered that years ago I had, but not since. So we decided to do it again.
This is so simple, yet takes the potato to a completely different level. It looks great and each slice is crispy on the outside.
Wash the potatoes.
Using a large wooden spoon or spatula as a barrier (to prevent the knife from slicing all the way down, as I did on the first few slices) slice each potato thinly.
Place potatoes onto a foil lined baking sheet.
Drizzle with olive oil.
Rub in the oil so that it gets into each section.
Season with salt and pepper and garlic powder. Rosemary would also be nice. Or any herb or spice you enjoy.
Bake at 400F for about an hour.
*Note: Baking times vary due to size of potato and your oven!!!!*
