Oven-fried Potatoes

It’s so easy to cook potatoes. When they are just lightly seasoned, as these oven-fried discs are, they balance and blend the stronger flavors in the entree and side dishes.

6 medium (4-inch-long) Idaho potatoes, washed thoroughly or peeled

½ cube butter

Salt and pepper to taste

Place a 9×13-inch baking dish with the butter in the oven. Turn on the oven to 375°F.

Slice the potatoes into 1/8-inch-thick rounds. (A mandoline slicer, if you have one and if you use it safely, makes it easy to ensure that the potatoes are evenly sliced.) Toss the rounds in salt and pepper to season them evenly.

Move the potato rounds to the baking dish and toss to coat them with the melted butter. Bake uncovered for approximately 30 to 40 minutes. Toss the rounds as they brown and crisp to ensure even cooking and to control how crisp you want your potatoes to be. Serve hot.
