Sliced baked potatoes are a delicious and simple side dish that pairs well with a variety of main courses.
Here’s a basic recipe to make them: Ingredients: 4 large potatoes (such as Russet or Yukon Gold) 2-3 tablespoons olive oil Salt, to taste Black pepper, to taste Garlic powder, optional Paprika, optional Grated Parmesan cheese, optional Chopped fresh herbs (such as parsley or chives),
optional Instructions: Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Prepare Potatoes: Scrub the potatoes clean under running water and pat them dry with a paper towel. Leave the skin on for added texture and flavor. If desired, peel the potatoes.
Slice Potatoes: Using a sharp knife, carefully slice the potatoes into thin rounds, about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Be careful not to slice all the way through; leave the bottom intact so the slices stay connected. Season Potatoes: Place the sliced potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes, making sure each slice is lightly coated. Season with salt, black pepper, and any additional seasonings you prefer, such as garlic powder, paprika, or grated Parmesan cheese. Bake Potatoes: Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven and bake the potatoes for 40-45 minutes, or until they are tender on the inside and crispy and golden brown on the outside.
You may want to flip the potatoes halfway through baking to ensure even cooking. Serve: Once the sliced baked potatoes are cooked through and crispy, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving. Garnish with chopped fresh herbs, if desired. Serve hot as a side dish alongside your favorite main course. Enjoy your delicious sliced baked potatoes as a tasty and comforting addition to any meal!
