Silver Dollar Potatoes

This is a side dish we make often around our house. Somehow, I ended up with a bunch of kids that HATE potatoes. Yes - really! My kids do not like potatoes. Mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, hash browns, roasted potatoes, tater tots - they won't touch them. But these? Ohhhhh ya. They love 'em!

Start out by taking a few Russet potatoes, scrub them up to get the dirt off. Then slice them into about 1/4" circles. Don't go any bigger than that or they'll take too long to cook. Just go for uniformity. Melt 1/2 a stick of butter (that's how much I used for 4 mid-sized Russets) in a bowl & then toss the sliced potatoes in & stir them around to coat them in the butter. Do not be alarmed by the amount of butter - a lot of it will be left behind in the bowl.

Then lay them out on a cookie sheet & pop them into a 350 degree oven for about 35-40 minutes. Get a little color on them.

About half way through flip them over (or get your hubby to do it if you're busy doing something more important than making dinner .... like making brownies!! LOL)

(Isn't he hot!?)

Once they come out of the oven give them a sprinkling of salt & enjoy! We had them with some pan-fried ham steaks & watermelon tonight - 2 large pink triangles side by side. Not the most eye-pleasing photo.... but our tummies sure did love it!

Good stuff!
