Pinterest Potatoes

Last night I wanted to try  something new with our  potatoes at dinner.

Awhile back, I found this picture on Pinterest, and thought it looked so good I wanted to try to make it too. I followed the directions of the Pin.  I was to cut thin slices almost all the way through, drizzle on olive oil and butter, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 40 minutes at 425 degrees. 

The first thing that I found out, is when you are cutting almost all the way through, it is VERY EASY to cut all the way through..  

I think the slices on my potatoes were a bit too tight.  Most of the olive oil and butter ended up on the cookie sheet instead of inside the slices.  

While ours did not turn out that beautiful golden color of the pin, it really didn't matter. They were still very tasty potatoes, that were super easy to make. My entire family enjoyed them, and I have been asked to make them again.  I think the next time though,  I will make sure to pull the slices farther apart so that more butter gets inside the potato.  This pin gets a definite thumbs up.  


  1. Yummy........
    I made them too a few weeks ago (I saw the same pin!)... When I cut it all the way through, I put a tooth pick and they look as nice as the picture ones... Next time, try to slice them thinner and leave it 5 more minutes and they will be golden as well :)

    1. Thanks for the tips! I will definitely try that nezt time. My kids loved them.


I would love to hear from you!
