Potato Fans

The possibilities are endless with this recipe! It's also a great way to use that one or two left over potatoes you haven't used yet. Bake time can vary greatly based on the size of the potato. The bigger they are the longer they have to cook.




  1. Pre-heat oven to 475 degrees F.
  2. Find the flattest side of the potato, cut a thin slice off the bottom. This is so the potato sits flat on the pan.
  3. Flip it over and make many small slices across the potato. Keep the knife straight up and down to avoid taking out wedges. Be sure to stop just below middle of the potato, so that it fans out.

    NOTE: If you accidentally go all the way through, just push it together. It won't be as pretty, but will still work.
  4. Melt butter, then combine equal parts butter and oil. Brush on butter mixture. Start with the bottom where you cut the potato to make it flat. This will keep it from sticking to the pan or foil. Then brush the top and sides of the potato with the oil butter mix.
  5. Sprinkle on any herbs you want, rosemary, garlic salt, jerk chicken herbs, nutritional yeast, you name it! When doing more than one flavor, line the spices up in the order you put them on the potato, in case you need to add more later.
  6. Bake about ten minutes, on the middle rack. Then brush on more butter mix. You don't need to do too much, but this will help it get crispy. Put the potatoes back in the oven and bake until the inside is soft. Smaller potatoes will take about an hour, larger ones (like in photo) take about 2.5 hours!
  7. The outside will be crispy, but the inside will be kind of soft like a French fry. These make a great snack, side dish, or party dish. People love to pull them apart. You can also dip them in your favorite condiment. Enjoy!
