French Baked Potatoes

French baked potatoes


  • 1 pound new potatoes
  • 1-2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • (Optional: add your favorite herbs like fresh dill, dried basil, rosemary, Italian spice, sage, or thyme)


Instructions: Preheat oven to 400°F. Wash potatoes and slice into thin strips (1/3 inch). Place them in a bowl, drizzle olive oil over the potatoes and add salt. Stir to coat. Spread single layer on a cookie sheet or glass baking dish. Bake in center of oven for 35-40 minutes. They turn out better if you do not stir them. Once the bottom is a little crispy or turning light brown, take them out and scrape them off the pan gently with the back of a spatula.
