  • OTG
  • Oven safe dish / tray


  • 3 large Potatoes preferably Russett potatoes
  • 30 gms Butter, melted
  • 1-2 tbsp Dried herbs or spice powders, per choice
  • 2 tbsp Shredded cheese, optional
  • Salt


  • Preheat the oven at 200C
  • Place a potato on a large spoon and slice it as thinly as possible. The idea is to slice it almost but not fully. The potato has to be joined as one at the bottom. Repeat for all the potatoes
  • Mix salt and your preferred spice mix or herbs to the melted butter
  • Place the potatoes in an oven safe dish or tray and apply half the butter on all sides generously
  • Bake the potatoes in the oven for 30 minutes. This will ensure that the sliced end of the potatoes have spread out as individual layers
  • Take out the potatoes from the oven and apply the remaining butter to the potatoes ensuring you get as much as possible between the slices
  • Bake again for 25 minutes
  • Sprinkle cheese on top if using and bake for another 10 minutes
  • Serve warm
