Sliced Baked Potatoes

A picture of today’s recipe popped up on my suggested posts on Facebook recently and I hardly took a second glance, that was until I fancied a baked potato for dinner and thought hmmmm I can make this with a twist and that is what I did. Here is my take on Sliced Baked Potatoes:

Ingredients

  • 1 Large Potato per person
  • Butter
  • Black Pepper
  • Topping of your choice

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C (fan)
  2. Clean the potatoes under cold water and pat dry
  3. Taking a sharp knife slice through the middle of the potato until there is around 1/4 uncut
  4. Then work your way out on each side making similar cuts to the potato
  5. Once this is done brush the potato generously with butter, do not worry if the butter does not got into the slices, once in the oven they will open and the butter will melt through
  6. Then place on a baking tray and put into the oven
  7. Turn the oven down to 150C (fan) and leave for 50 minutes (maybe a little longer if you have huge potatoes)
  8. After 50 minutes take the potatoes out and brush with butter again before adding a little black pepper
  9. Place back into the oven for 10 minutes
  10. After this they are ready to have the topping of your choice added (I went for the good ol’ grated cheese)

I really loved these Sliced Baked Potatoes as they were a little crisper and crunchier than normal, almost like lots of slices of sauteed potatoes, which I also happen to love, and I just thought that it made something we are all used to a little more exciting!
