  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or melted butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme (optional)
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)
  • Sour cream or your favorite dipping sauce (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Prepare the Potatoes:
    • Scrub the potatoes thoroughly to remove any dirt. You can peel the potatoes if you prefer, but leaving the skin on adds texture and flavor. Pat them dry with a paper towel.
  3. Slice the Potatoes:
    • Using a sharp knife, carefully slice each potato into thin rounds, ensuring they are of uniform thickness for even baking. Be cautious not to cut all the way through; leave the bottom intact to keep the slices together.
  4. Season the Potatoes:
    • Place the sliced potatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil or melted butter over the potatoes, making sure to get it in between the slices. Season with salt and pepper. If desired, sprinkle garlic powder, paprika, and dried thyme for extra flavor.
  5. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for about 40-45 minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy on the edges. You can check for doneness by inserting a fork; it should slide in easily.
  6. Optional Cheese Topping:
    • If you like, sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the potatoes during the last 10 minutes of baking to allow it to melt and become golden.
  7. Garnish and Serve:
    • Once baked, remove the potatoes from the oven. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and serve hot. Optionally, provide sour cream or your favorite dipping sauce on the side.

Enjoy these crispy and flavorful sliced baked potatoes as a side dish with your favorite main course. They’re perfect for a family dinner or as a side at a gathering. Feel free to customize the seasonings and toppings according to your preferences.
