- Vegetable Oil.

Step 1: Prepping the Potatoes.

1. Preheat your oven to 400*

2. Wash your potatoes.

3. Using your small pairing knife, cut out any potato eyes or bruises.

4. Place the chop sticks on either side of the potato, ensuring they are pressed up close.

5. Using the Chef knife, slice the potato until you hit the chop stick.

6. Repeat this action all the way down the potato spacing about 1/4 inch apart.

Step 2: Time to Season.

2. Season with Kosher salt.

3. Season with Pepper.

Step 3: Opps!

Step 4:

2. Finely chop your green onion or your fresh herbs.

3. Place the onion or herbs in between the slices of your potatoes.
