  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • paprika

  • Coat a 9 X 13 inch baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • Layer the potato slices in the dish and sprinkle the chopped onion on top of the potatoes.

  • Pour the mixture over the potatoes and onions.

  • Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove foil and bake for another 30 minutes.


Yukon gold potatoes are a softer potato and cook quicker than a russet or other type of baking potato. If you are not using Yukon gold, then you might need to bake longer to cook the potatoes all the way through. Also, a mandoline slicer works great for cutting the potatoes into thin slices.
