Marla's Potatoes

Marla's Potatoes
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Yeast-Free, Soy-Free, Corn-Free, Peanut-Free

These are very popular with kids and adults. Count on using one large potato per person, more if they are potato fans. They go great with roasts, BBQs, or just about any meal.

4 extra large potatoes (we like Yukon Gold or Red)
1/4 cup olive oil
Sea Salt
Freshly ground pepper

Optional spices: Gluten-free Italian seasoning, or rosemary, or thyme, or basil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line 2 oblong baking dishes or cookie sheets with baking parchment (makes clean up easy and the potatoes don't stick!)

Wash the potatoes well
Leaving the skins on, slice the raw potatoes in 1/4 inch thick slices width-wise. They look like very fat potato chips.

Place all the slices in a large bowl and pour the olive oil all over the top of them. Toss the potatoes in the oil so that it lightly coats both sides. Place the potato slices in a single layer on the baking sheets and season them (sprinkle it sparingly on top) to taste with salt, pepper and any other desired seasonings.

Bake them for 20-30 minutes or until they are soft and tender when you pierce them with a fork. There is no need to turn them. They will be slightly browned on the bottom and white on the top when done. Serve hot from the oven.
