Sliced Baked Potatoes


  • 4 medium potatoes (shaped long)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp melted butter or olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp dried herbs parsley, thyme, sage, rosemary (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp grated Cheddar cheese or parmesan cheese (optional)

Peel potatoes if the skin is tough, otherwise just scrub and rinse them.

Cut potatoes into thin slices but not all the way through. Use a handle of a wooden spoon to prevent knife from cutting all the way. Put potatoes in a baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with herbs.

Bake potatoes in a 200 degree C, oven for about 50 minutes.

Remove from oven. Sprinkle with cheeses. Bake potatoes for another 10 minutes until lightly browned, cheeses are melted, and potatoes are soft inside. Check with a fork. Ready to serve.
