Baked Potato Slices

Initially, I didn’t want to post this recipe for Potato Slices on the blog because it’s too easy – too simple. But whenever I post my lunch on Instagram and it contains potato slices as a side dish, I receive so many messages asking me for the recipe. So here it goes.

The Ingredients

For simple and delicious potato slices you’ll need:

  • russet potatoes
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • black pepper (optional)

Instead of black pepper, you can also add rosemary, everything bagel seasoning, paprika powder, chili flakes… whatever you feel like!

How to make the perfect crispy Oven Baked Potato Slices

I love how simple these baked potato rounds are. They are thinner and therefore bake through quicker than regular potato wedges. This is why I prefer making them when I need a quick potato side dish.

Step 1: Peel the potatoes. Wash them. Pat them dry. Slice them thinly and evenly with a knife or even better: with a mandoline slicer.

Step 3: Mix the potatoes around until they are all coated. I usually fold one side of the parchment paper over and swirl them around (that way I don’t have to get my hands or a spoon oily).

Oven Baked Potato Slices FAQ

Can I use sweet potatoes instead?

Definitely! I even have a recipe for oven-baked sweet potato slices.

My potato slices stick to the paper/baking tray!

Make sure you use the right kind of parchment paper, not wax paper. You can also add more oil to prevent the potato slices from sticking to the paper or tray.

Does the tray go in the top of the oven?

I place the potato slices into the middle/center oven rack.

Can I replace olive oil with another oil?

Yes! You can use pretty much any oil you like (canola, sunflower, soy, peanut,..)

Should the potato slices be flipped halfway through?

You can do that, but it’s not necessary!

Do you have any more questions? Leave them in the comments below and I will do my best to answer them!

How do you store them, if necessary? I'm planning to slice the potato lengthwise for a larger base., Thanks for this recipe - it's easy, and what I was planning to do, but I wanted to see what others were doing to replace bread and bagels. I want lox and cream cheese, but I can't eat bagels.

Does this cook the same with the potato peels still on the slices?

absolutely! I leave on the potato skin all the time and it works like a charm!

Only thing else I like to do is rinse the starch from potato's and microwave in water for 5-7 minutes until partially cooked then drained and salt and freeze until ready to add to oven.

I use haldi (turmeric) to give a lovely golden appearance.
