The Best Baked Potatoes in the World



There are two reasons for this post. One, I can never find baked potatoes to satisfy me. They are always too bland or undercooked or something. Two, I had a jar of mayonnaise left over from the biscuits I made for last month's Taste & Create and could not think of any use for it.

To make these super quick baked potatoes, preheat over to 180C. Cut potatoes into thin slices and arrange in a single layer on a nonstick baking sheet. Sprinkle salt and pepper to coat all slices. Bake for 7-8 minutes until half done.

Bring the baking sheet out of the oven and dot the potatoes with mayonnaise. Back in the oven for 5 minutes - I actually speared a slice with fork to figure out if they were soft and took them out when they were. Perfect as a side dish, or just on their own!
