Baked Garlic Potato Slices


  • 2-4 Whole potatoes;
  • salt;
  • olive oil;
  • finely chopped garlic;
  • herbs and spices (your choice)


Preheat oven to 400 deg F.
Slice potatoes into desired thickness. Thinner is crispier is better. Cut them with a knife or make it easy on you by using a mandoline.
Next, rinse potatoes with water to remove starch. Dry with paper towel. Although this dish is one of the easy snacks to bake, removing starch from each potato slice is very important in order to keep the slices from becoming soggy.
In a large bowl, mix olive oil, salt, chopped garlic, and your choice of herbs. Add the potatoes and continue to mix until each slice is evenly coated.
Place each slice of potato in a baking pan. Stick pan in the oven. Turn potatoes every 15 minutes until golden brown.
Serve while hot. You can use any type of dipping sauce. I prefer ranch dressing and/or Thousand Islands. But if you’re strict on your healthy weight loss diet, low fat versions of dipping sauce should be your choice.
