Cheesy Potato Planks

Melanie B


On another site, I read a mixer's recipe for a blue cheese potato bake. I thought it sounded really good, but a bit heavy. So here is what I did. I can see adding some sauteed mushrooms or cooked, crumbled bacon under the cheese next time.

russett potaotes (i left the skin on and filled up the sheet pan)
olive oil
salt and pepper
1 Tbsp
cheese per potato plank (your choice of cheese)

Directions Step-By-Step

Wash potatoes and slice long ways into about 1/4 inch thick slices. Lay on a sheet pan that has been lined foil or parchment paper. Brush with olive oil. Bake in a 350 oven for 15 minutes, flip over, brush with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake another 15 minutes or until tender. Top with about a Tablespoon or so of your choice of cheese and bake for another 5-7 minutes or until the cheese melts. Be cautious on the salt if you are using a salty cheese like blue cheese.
I made Some With Blue Cheese Crumbles, grated cheddar cheese and grated Italian blend, but you can use whatever you want or like
