One of my favorite new recipes is easy to make, and so yummy. Baked Potato Rounds are just what the name says they are, potatoes sliced into rounds and baked in the oven. The key to making these potatoes delicious, are the toppings. Here’s how to make these super easy potatoes that are sure to impress whether it’s a weeknight at home in front of the television, or hanging with friend's for the big game.
Begin with two large potatoes for baking (Russet, Goldrush, Norkotah, Long White or Idaho) scrub them with a brush or rag to remove any dirt. Two large potatoes will make enough for 2-4 people. Prepare a cookie sheet by covering it with foil and then applying a non-stick spray. Then slice the potato into one inch pieces leaving the skin on the potato, and putting them on the cookie sheet. I wrap the cookie sheet in foil to make clean up a little easier. I also use a little nonstick spray but you can skip that step if you choose.
After putting the potatoes on the cookie sheet, cover them with butter. The easiest way I’ve found to do this is to melt the butter and then brush it on with a basting brush. After applying the butter, salt and pepper them to taste. Once you’ve prepared the potatoes put them in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes at 400 degrees, flipping them once about halfway through. When the potatoes have finished cooking cover them with cheese (I used sharp cheddar) crumbled bacon and green onion. Continue baking until the cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream, ranch dressing or other sauce of your choice. Enjoy!
