about 20 slices (serving size: 1 slice with a scant tablespoon each of sour cream and red salmon caviar)
These savory slices are simple but irresistible, with toppings tailored for either kids or adults.
Nonstick cooking spray or olive oil to grease cookie sheets
4 large baking potatoes, scrubbed clean
1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried thyme, oregano, or basil, or 2 tablespoons fresh, finely chopped
1 cup sour cream
1 cup mild salsa
1/4 cup grated cheese, crumbled bacon, or crumbled sausage
1/2 cup red salmon caviar
2 tablespoons chives, finely chopped
1 lemon, sliced paper-thin and cut into quarters
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350º and lightly grease 2 cookie sheets. Cut the potatoes into 1/4 inch slices and place on the cookie sheets, making sure the slices don't touch.
Using a pastry brush or the back of a spoon, lightly coat potato slices with half the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with half the herbs. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes. Flip the potatoes over and brush with remaining oil, salt, pepper, and the rest of the herbs. Bake another 5 to 8 minutes, or until tender and golden on both sides. Remove from the oven, lightly blot with a paper towel to remove excess oil, and transfer to a serving plate.
For kids: Top each slice with sour cream and salsa, or grated cheese, or crumbled bacon or sausage. For adults: Use sour cream and red caviar, plus chives and a lemon slice to garnish.
Pre-party prep: Have toppings ready in bowls; cover with foil and refrigerate until ready to serve. Bring disposable cookie sheets, and slice and prepare the potatoes once you get to the party.
How kids can help: Brush the potato slices with oil, sprinkle with seasonings, and spoon toppings on cooked slices.
