  • 4 medium russet potatoes, scrubbed and dried
  • 2 tbsp. canola or avocado oil do NOT use olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. coarse kosher sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly chopped parsley or chives


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, set aside.
  • Using skewers or dowels (if you have a steady and and a careful eye this is not necessary), place the potato over top and cut thin, even slices across the potato.
  • Brush with oil, between each cut. Sprinkle top with salt and pepper.
  • Place in oven and bake for 1 hour, or until potatoes are fork tender. Every 20 minutes, brush the potatoes (and inside the cuts) with remaining oil.
  • Once cooked, remove from the oven and brush with butter. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley or chives and serve.


-You can serve this with cheese and bits of bacon! Add these ingredients in between the cuts during the last 5 minutes of cook time. Skip the butter but add the herbs!
