I made Baked Sliced Potatoes last night for dinner. I actually made a double batch so we'd have some left over to have with eggs for a couple of breakfasts.
The recipe is pretty simple.
Scrub a potato for each serving. (Less if you're going easy on the size of servings as we still are.) Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Slice the potatoes lengthwise in about 1/4" slices. (I had kind of a fat potato here so you can't really tell that I sliced it lengthwise.)
On a cookie sheet with a lip, chunk up 1/4 stick of butter (4 tablespoons) and put the sheet in the oven until the butter is melted. (Truth to tell, you could get by with less butter. Possibly as little as 2 tablespoons, but maybe three would be better. You'll have to experiment. I went with the 4 tablespoons last night but there was plenty of butter left on the cookie sheet after all was said and done.)
Place slices of potatoes on melted butter in pan. Turn slices once so both sides are coated. Now sprinkle each slice with salt, pepper, paprika and grated Parmesan cheese. Flip all slices one more time and sprinkle remaining side of slices with seasonings.
Place baking sheet in oven on rack in lower third of oven. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. If you have two sheets full of potatoes and need to use a higher rack also, that's fine. The potato slices on the higher rack will be cooked but just not as browned and crispy.
Fresh (frozen) garden peas, fresh herring, and Baked Sliced Potatoes was our dinner last night. But I was bad. Hubby stopped at the one serving of everything, but I ate a second piece of fish. And was sorry for it afterwards. Guilt, of course, plus it was a bit too much for my (happily) shrunken stomach. Oooowie-owie, stuffed tummy. :o(
