From Ketchup…What’s Cookin’ Wednesday

Time for another addition of WCW.

I pinned this recipe to my pinterest quite awhile ago and was just looking for the best time to mix it in with the regularly scheduled programming. Finally had my chance and I decided to serve these sliced baked potatoes with crockpot ribs.

First off you have to slice the potatoes really thin, I used a crazy sharp ceramic knife to do this. {Watch out for those freshly manicured nails...HA}

Then you place them in the pan, drizzle with olive oil, LOTS of salt and pepper (I’ll explain later…not just an addict) and butter.

Stick those suckers in the oven at 425* to cook up nice and golden brown.


Alright…now the nitty gritty. These did NOT turn out as I expected and I was NOT pleased at all! First off the damn recipe says 425* for 40-45 mins…try more like an hour and a half! To be fair, I used HUGE potatoes (Idaho spuds) but seriously nearly twice as long as the recipe called for is ridiculous and 425* is hot!

I kept testing them as they baked to make sure they were done all the way thru and the middles never really got there! AND the outside really wasn’t that crispy…at least not like I had hoped for.

Also…I didn’t use enough salt. They kinda tasted blah! B-O-R-I-N-G…for as long as it took I should have just made plain ‘ole baked potatoes. Although, these sure do look prettier don't they? Ugh...whatev...disappointed doesn't even cover it!

No thanks! Won’t be doing THIS one again!!!

Do you have a recipe you want to try and just are sure it’s worth the time and effort…send it to me…I’ll give it a whirl and let you know if it’s worth your time!
