Baked Garlic Potato Slices - Food, Fun, and Happiness

Baked Garlic Potato Slices

Simple and healthy snack to make. Just sliced up potatoes, sprinkled with salt, garlic, and seasoning. Then baked in oven.

This is one of those fun dishes to make with potatoes. Think of it as an alternative to french fries.

Potatoes are cooked in an oven not an oil pan. If you love making easy snacks, then a batch of sliced baked potatoes is one way to go.

Easy Baked Garlic Potato Slices

Here are the ingredients:
  • 2-4 Whole potatoes;
  • salt;
  • olive oil;
  • finely chopped garlic;
  • herbs and spices (your choice)

Preheat oven to 400 deg F.

Slice potatoes into desired thickness. Thinner is crispier is better.

An 8-inch serrated chef's knife is best for slicing potatoes, onions, carrots and other vegetables for clean cuts.

The next step is key. You have to rinse the potatoes with water to remove starch.

Removing starch from each potato slice is very important because it keeps the slices from becoming soggy when they bake.

Dry potato slices with paper towel.

In a large bowl, mix olive oil, salt, chopped garlic, and your choice of herbs. Add the potatoes and continue to mix until each slice is evenly coated.

Place each slice of potato in a baking pan and stick pan in oven.

Turn potatoes every 15 minutes until golden brown.

Remove from oven.

Serve while hot.

You can use any type of dipping sauce. I prefer low fat ranch dressing.

Simple enough, right?

Baked Garlic Potato Slices. After slicing, rinse potatoes with water to remove as much starch as possible so that they do not become soggy when baking.

Other things I'm thinking of is using my slow cooker to cook potatoes. But for this recipe, slicing and baking are so simple, yet so tasty.

By baking pan do you mean a baking sheet with the potatoes NOT overlapping or will a large iron skillet work?

Nicole Tessa said...

Baking sheet with olive oil. With a skillet, are you thinking of frying? I suppose you could do that. I like mine baked.

Gail McCuistion said...

Approximately how long do they bake if sliced rather thin?

Nicole Tessa said...

Gail, you should be checking on the potatoes and turning them every 15 minutes until they are to your satisfaction. I don't bake-and-forget when making these.

Suggestions on herbs and spices?

Nicole Tessa said...

Cheryl, I usually don't add any herbs and spices when I make these. For me, it's the dipping sauce that makes it all taste fantastic. But I'm partial to any herb/spices mix that's kinda lemony and peppery, such as those from McCormick.
