Sliced Baked Potatoes

Sliced Baked Potatoes

A Baking Potato
Olive Oil
Butter
Seasoned Salt
Extra Toppings: Bacon Pieces, Cheese, etc.

Wash and dry the potato. Lay the potato on the flatter side. Using a knife, begin at one end of the potato and thinly slice. Take the knife almost to the base of the potato, but DO NOT cut completely through. Once completed, drizzle olive oil and seasoned salt over the potato and place a small amount of butter throughout the sliced potato. Add any extra toppings in between the slices. Bake the potato at 425 degrees for an hour or until done.

Again, I can thank Pinterest for this idea. It was a nice change from the standard baked potato. When we cook baked potatoes, we do not eat the skin and I always feel like a lot of the potato is wasted. J & I actually split a potato when I made this and it was a filling side. The potato slices are tender, but with a crispiness around the edge. We used seasoned salt, EVOO and butter. I would love to play around with it and add other toppings, but that was all I had on hand. Next time!
