These Oven Baked Potato Slices are easy to make and versatile. You can serve them as a side dish or with a dip as a snack! They are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Initially, I didn’t want to post this recipe for Potato Slices on the blog because it’s too easy – too simple. But whenever I post my lunch on Instagram and it contains potato slices as a side dish, I receive so many messages asking me for the recipe. So here it goes.
I love how simple these baked potato rounds are. They are thinner and therefore bake through quicker than regular potato wedges. This is why I prefer making them when I need a quick potato side dish.
4 medium russet potatoes
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C.
Peel the potatoes. Wash them. Pat them dry. Slice them thinly and evenly with a knife or even better: with a mandoline slicer.
Place the potato slices on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Add the olive oil, salt, and cracked pepper on top. Mix the potatoes around until they are all coated. I usually fold one side of the parchment paper over and swirl them around (that way I don’t have to get my hands or a spoon oily). Lay them flat on the parchment paper without overlapping each other.
Bake the potato slices in the oven for about 15-20 minutes or until golden. Enjoy as a side dish or as a delicious snack with a dip!
