DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450 F degrees.
  • If you are using young potatoes or potatoes with a clean skin, DO NOT PEEL, just scrub well; otherwise peel potatoes.
  • Slice potatoes lengthwise to about 1/2 inch thick slices.
  • Place in a large bowl; cover with cold water and let sit for about 5 minutes.
  • Drain and pat slices dry with paper towelling.
  • DO NOT RUB POTATOES WITH ANY OILS OR BUTTER.
  • Place directly on middle rack in oven and bake for 20 minutes in preheated 450 F oven.
  • Turn potatoes over and continue to bake for an additional 15 minutes or until cooked.
  • Remove potatoes into a large bowl.
  • Drizzle melted butter or margarine over potatoes; gently turn slices to coat.
  • Serve with additional melted butter or margarine, a dollop of yogurt or sour cream and a sprinkling of chopped green onions or chives.
  • If desired, you may wish to sprinkle sliced potatoes before baking with garlic powder or your choice of a spice.
  • The slices will puff up and turn a nice medium-dark brown when baked.
