  • 4 medium potatoes (Russet is what I used)

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • ⅛ tsp pepper

  • ⅛ tsp cayenne pepper

  • ⅛ tsp garlic powder

  • ⅛ tsp paprika

  • 4 to 6 tbsp olive oil

How To Make Sliced Baked Potatoes:

Step 1: Preparing the Potatoes

Start by washing and drying the potatoes. Leave the skin on for added flavor and nutrients. Slice each potato vertically, but be sure to only go halfway down to the bottom. You can also slice the potatoes at an angle for a crispier texture.

Step 2: Preparing the Seasoning

Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). In a small bowl, mix together the salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. This flavorful seasoning will elevate the taste of the potatoes!

Step 3: Adding Flavor

Spritz the potatoes with olive oil, ensuring they are evenly coated. This will help them crisp up while baking. Next, sprinkle the seasoning mixture evenly over the potatoes, making sure to cover all sides. The combination of spices will create a delicious flavor profile.

Step 4: Baking the Potatoes

Place the seasoned potatoes on a parchment-lined baking tray. This will prevent them from sticking and make for easy cleanup. Bake the potatoes in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until they are tender and golden brown. The aroma will fill your kitchen and have your mouth watering!

Step 5: Enjoying the Perfect Side Dish

Once the potatoes are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Serve them alongside your favorite meat entrée or as a standalone snack. The crispy exterior and soft interior make for a delightful combination.
