Sliced Baked Potatoes

A fun way to prep those spuds!

2 small baking potatoes
2 teaspoons olive oil
salt and lemon pepper
dash of paprika

1.  Preheat oven to 425┬║F.  Line cookie sheet with foil and prep with nonstick spray.  Wash potatoes and slice almost all the way through.  You want to make sure that the slices are all still attached at the bottom of the potato.

2.  Drizzle with olive oil and your favorite potato seasonings [mine are listed above]

3.  Place on prepped cookie sheets and bake for approximately 40 minutes.

Review/Suggestions:

  • I read a suggestion of using a chop stick placed next to the potato.  This is suppose to act as a guard against you slicing completely through the potato.  For the most part it really did work.
  • I used really small yellow potatoes so it made slicing them (and not my fingers) a true test of my knife welding skills.  [Happy to report all fingers still intact!]

  1. these were really fun...after they were cooked I added sliced monteray jack cheese and bacon slices then broiled them on low for a couple of minutes...I put a wooden spoon on either side of the potato when cutting and that worked nicely
