Sliced Baked Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Peel potatoes only if the skin is tough, otherwise, just scrub and rinse them.
  • Cut potatoes vertically, into thin slices, but not all the way through. Lay a spoon next to the potato to prevent knife from cutting all the way through. (A wooden spoon works great.).
  • Put potatoes in a baking dish. Fan them slightly.
  • Sprinkle with salt, and drizzle with the melted butter. Sprinkle with herbs.
  • Bake potatoes at 425 degrees for about 50 minutes.
  • Remove from oven. Sprinkle with cheeses.
  • Bake potatoes for another 10-15 minutes until lightly browned, cheeses are melted, and potatoes are soft inside. Check for doneness with a fork.
  • To microwave: Prepare potatoes as above, and place in a microwave safe dish or pan.
  • Sprinkle with melted butter and herbs.
  • Microwave on High power for 10 minutes, rearranging the potatoes after 5 minutes if your microwave does not have an automatic turn table.
  • Let rest for 5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with grated cheese and Parmesan cheese.
  • Microwave for another 4-6 minutes on High power until cheeses are melted, and potatoes are soft.
  • Sprinkle with salt, and serve.
  • Note: You may substitute 2-3 teaspoons dried herbs of your choice for the fresh, if you prefer.
  • After the potatoes are done, a little sour cream on top, sprinkled with bacon bits might be good.
