IMG_20150411_114942

This is a great dish for having guests over for a casual setting, a whole potato is too much for snacking, but these thin slices work for all appetites. Tell the kids they are potato chips and a watch them disappear.

Ingredients

  • 4 large white or sweet potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter or olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Salt
  • Optional Cooking Topping: bacon, minced fresh herbs, spices, grated cheese, panko crumbs
  • Optional Serving Topping: Sour Cream

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Wash and dry the potatoes
  3. Cut slits in the potatoes, leaving the bottom intact
  4. Rinse sliced potato, to help promote separation of layers by flushing away some starches.
  5. Arrange the potatoes in a baking dish and brush the potatoes all over with butter or other fat, including the bottoms.
  6. Sprinkle the potatoes generously with salt, pepper and garlic salt.
  7. Bake the potatoes for 30 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and brush the potatoes again with fat. Make sure to get fat better the slices.
  8. Bake for another 30 to 40 minutes, until the potatoes are crispy on the edges and easily pieced in the middles with a paring knife. If you’re adding any extras, stuff those into the slits and sprinkle over the top 5 to 10 minutes before the end of cooking.
