Fanned Potatoes

August 31, 2008

Potatoes are such an easy and versatile vegetable to use for sides with multiple types of food.  I love potatoes and I love trying new recipes using them.  This recipe was so easy and very quick to put together.  You could use pretty much any type seasonings you wanted to to change it up and to make it compliment the taste of the main dish.  For this particular recipe I just used salt, pepper, butter and garlic salt to season; something very simple but it made the end result very good.  This recipe isn’t just your average “baked potato” recipe; the inside of the potato is very soft more along the lines of a baked potato but the outer edges were a little crispy and gave the entire taste just a little something different.  We thoroughly enjoyed these and I’m sure we’ll definitely be having these many more times.



2 Potatoes-medium to large size

2-4 Tablespoons butter

1/2 Small onion, sliced

Salt and Pepper

Garlic Salt-(I use Lowry’s Garlic Salt with herbs)



Preheat oven to 350 F.  Thinly slice potatoes, but do not slice all the way through, making the end result look like a fan.  Rub the bottom of an oven safe dish with either part of the butter for spray with cooking oil.  Place potatoes in dish; season with salt, pepper, and garlic salt.  Spread onion slices over potatoes and dish and then set butter slices on top of potatoes.  Place in oven and bake for 30-45 minutes or until tender in middle.
