Sliced Baked Potatoes

These Sliced Baked Potatoes are changing the baked potato game. They are so easy to make and full of flavor. You have never had a baked potato quite like this before. So simple, and so delicious.

 If you love baked potatoes as much as we do, then this is the recipe for you. There is so much flavor in these potatoes, you almost don’t even need to put toppings on them.

The slices in the potatoes allow the butter and garlic flavors to actually stick to the potatoes. Every bite is packed with the most delicious flavor. We will never have regular baked potatoes again.

Not to mention this is a cheap and delicious side dish recipe that is perfect for just about any dish.

You could also make it a main dish, by adding in some meat, chili, and other favorite baked potato toppings. Either way, I do not think you will be disappointed in these Sliced Baked Potatoes.

They are so simple, quick, inexpensive, and tasty.

add a little more flavor:

This dish is delicious as is, however, I like to add a little ranch seasoning mix to give it just a little extra flavor. It is so yummy with a little kick of ranch seasoning mix.

would any potato work for this recipe?

For this recipe, we used russet potatoes, however, really any potato would work for this recipe. I have never made it using sweet potatoes because I usually use russet potatoes.

I have made this recipe using red potatoes and it was absolutely scrumptious. You can also peel the potatoes, or keep the skin on. I like the texture of the skin, so I usually keep it on.

You could also use golden yukon potatoes. Really any potato would work great for this recipe. If you have a favorite potato, try it. It’s hard to mess this recipe up, so any type of potato would be delicious.

our favorite baked potato toppings:

It is all about the toppings for me. If you are looking for more things to top your baked potato off with, here are a few I recommend:

  • chives
  • bacon crumbles
  • cubed ham
  • olives
  • bell peppers
  • jalapenos
  • plain Greek yogurt
  • chili (with crumbled frito corn chips)
  • seasonings
  • lettuce

  1. I am no chef, but when I made these for my extended family, I LOOKED LIKE A CHEF! They turned out delish and very elegant looking! They may be more work at the get go, but they are already toddler friendly right out of the oven! A new favorite!
