This is a sliced basked potato recipe I created myself. I found myself always serving mashed potatoes or baked potatoes as a side dish at dinner, so I decided to create a new potato recipe in order to mix things up at mealtime.
My kids are ages 12, 10, and 8; and they really enjoy these sliced baked potatoes. If you have kids, chances are, they will enjoy them too! I hope you love the recipe. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
Sliced Baked Potatoes
- 2 potatoes
- 1 stick of butter
- Olive Oil
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees with the stick of butter inside the baker in the oven. When the oven reaches about 200 degrees, remove the baker while wearing an oven mitt, and CAREFULLY slice up the butter stick, and then place the pats around the inside of the baker.
Slice uncooked, peeled potatoes about 1/4 inch thick. Spread out the potato slices in the baker on top of the melted butter. I use a 9″ x 13″ casserole dish similar to this one, but anything similar will work fine.
After the potatoes are evenly distributed in the baker, spray olive oil on top of all the potato slices. If you don’t have an olive oil sprayer, you can find the one I own online here. It is amazing, and very handy! You can also find a less expensive sprayer online here.
Season to taste. Sprinkle basil, oregano, garlic, salt, and paprika over the tops of the potato slices. I use about a tablespoon of each; with the exception of the salt. I only use a few dashes of salt. You can delete any one of these seasonings you don’t like. If you have kids who don’t like mild spice, delete the paprika. If you want to kick things up a notch, try adding Cayenne Pepper; seasoned to taste.

Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes. Some of the smaller pieces will start to get crispy, and the larger ones will be soft. I prefer the crispy pieces, and my kids prefer the soft ones. So this is a plus!
I hope you enjoy my baked sliced potato recipe. My kids really enjoy it, so I’m happy to share it!
This is a great side dish with steak, salmon, chicken, or anything you like to serve with potatoes! Enjoy!
