I just love potatoes. Oh, I love them so much. there is nothing you can do to a potato to make me not like it.
This recipe (or nearly this) was one I found in the Yankee Magazine cookbook or in the magazine. And it's a family favorite because, well... It's easy and wonderful.
Take nice baking potatoes.
Now here's the fun part:
Dip each chip in butter. You can sprinkle them with garlic, salt, and/or parmesan cheese. Or leave them plain, just buttered.
Lay on cookie sheet. (I use several and fill the oven) Roast at 375 degrees until golden brown and the smell is intoxicatingly good. (See, I can use adverbs with "ly" over here and no one will yell at me.)
These have rosemary garlic seasoning with salt and pepper:
They are amazing. And the only time you spent was slicing and dipping the potatoes. Easy-peasy.
Eat. Eat a lot. Because all you did was dip them in butter and bake them, and the fact that they're THIS GOOD is like a miracle, so you should respect that and eat tons of them.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The FDA has determined that the consumption of potato products in excess is likely to produce symptoms of celtimania. These symptoms include but are not limited to the urge to smile at strangers, dance a jig or reel in public places, raise a brew to wet a baby's head (also known as celebrate a birth, an ancient tribal process) speak with a brogue and wear really cute layered clothes accompanied by sweaters. If any of these symptoms should appear, be assured the FDA has determined they are not life-threatening and may actually make you popular among your peers. Although you are sure to embarrass your children.
