How To Make italian potatoes

  • 1
    In a large baking dish, cut up spuds in uniform slices, about 1/8" thick.
  • 2
    Lay them in around in layers so most of each is exposed.
  • 3
    Put the butter in and around the spuds on the top layer.
  • 4
    Shake and pour the bottle over the spuds. Cover with foil and bake 1 hour. Before serving, insert a sharp knife into the foil center and "test" the spuds to make sure they are soft and done. If they need a bit more time, leave the foil on and bake an additional 10 minutes.

    Optional Additions: Real bacon bits or pieces broken up, diced ham during the bake, and Parmason cheese when it's done.
