A good potato side dish. The dish is a combo of some crisp and chewy potatoes but both types are gooooood! From the Readers Digest Quick, thrify cookbook. Posting a few recipes I have tried out from this book today.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven 230C.
  2. Peel the potatoes and cut them into thin slices.
  3. Mix the oil, salt and pepper into the potatoes and herbs too if you want.
  4. Toss well.
  5. Spread the slices in a large baking pan (non stick preferable) so that they overlap slightly.
  6. Bake the potatoes uncovered for around 20 mins.
  7. You can bake them longer if you need them crisper.

This is a quick, easy, tasty side dish for a week night dinner! I scaled the recipe, cooking 1 very large russet potato, sprayed my baking dish with Pam, mixed the slices & the savoury herbs with 1 tbsp margarine. I'll probably add some onion slices next time. Thanx Fay!

Yummo! I used olive oil and put them in a 350 oven, but otherwise followed exactly. Nice flavor. Served with Smoky Mountain Chicken - went great together & enjoyed the leftovers for lunch at work today. Thanks for sharing!

Excellent recipe! I put mine on a cookie sheet and mixed in just enough oil to coat the potato slices. I especially liked those on the outside edges of the sheet that got really crispy. I only used salt and pepper. A definite keeper!
