Do you like potatoes?

We sure do! So today, I’m sharing a fun and easy way to bake potatoes to accompany a meal, or as a snack.

Start with a fairly large potato, and slice it across the top from side side to side, without cutting all the way through. Make the cuts as close or as far apart as you like, depending on how thick you want the potato slices.

Drizzle the top with melted butter, a little olive oil, some sea salt, and pepper. We have also topped it with things like bacon bits and cheese.

Bake the potatoes for about 40 minutes at 425 degrees.

Sometimes, I bake the potato with just the butter, oil, and salt. Then, when it’s done, I top it with ketchup and goat cheese. This may sound a little strange, but it tastes fantastic!

This is another very simple and versatile recipe. You can do whatever you like with it, which is what makes it so much fun.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog on recipe day. I plan to be back on Sunday with another post, although I’m not sure yet what it will be. Hopefully, it will be something fun. 😃

    I love taters!! We make them so many different ways, but I love your recommendation of making small slices in the top before baking, makes sense! I’m going to have to try the ketchup and goat cheese now lol. 😀

      Hi, Kester, I’m so glad you were able to drop by. I’m a big fan of fried potatoes, but I don’t like all the oil. So baking is better. I started using goat cheese with the ketchup when I was frying them, but it works even better when they’re baked. I think I get more of the actual potato taste when it’s not cooked in oil. Please let me know how it works out for you. 😀

    I do like potatoes, no question about that! That sounds nice. We bought an air fryer recently, and have been making sweet potato fries or thick chips rather often.

      Hi, Mark, thanks for stopping by. I have been thinking about getting an air fryer, but just haven’t done it yet. It works well?

        Yes, it works pretty well. We haven’t done a chicken or anything like that yet. We bought a small one.

        We bought a nuwave oven, which is kind of along the same lines. I love that because I can cook from frozen in no time at all. And it makes the best grilled cheese sandwiches ever! 😀
