Step 1: What You Need

This depends on your taste, and the number of people. 
Generally, I use the following:

1 medium potato per person plus one extra
three to four tablespoons of olive oil
 Spices; Rosemary, oregano, onion salt, garlic salt, pepper, thyme, ground sage (to taste)
cooking spray

for two potatoes, 1 baking pan
for more, two

Step 2: Preheat the Oven

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Step 3: Grease the Pan

Grease the pan(s) with the cooking spray.

Step 4: Wash Potatoes

I used four potatoes. Wash them thoroughly, since you leave the skin on. 

Step 5: Slice

Slice the potatoes into disks between a quarter and an eighth of an inch. Set the slices in the prepared pans. It is okay if they touch or are crowded. 

Step 6: Oil Them Up.

Wash the potatoes in olive oil. Not enough to drown them, but enough to help them cook nicely. 

Step 7: Flavor Time

Sprinkle the slices with the spices. I use onion salt, garlic salt, pepper, thyme, rosemary, oregano, and ground sage. The amount is up to you, and your taste. 

Step 8: Bake

Bake for 21-24 minutes. More or less if you want crispy, but this is a good time for moist, flavorful potatoes.

    I have made these often and I found dumping the slices in a tea towel and giving them a shake to dry off the sticky starch helps tremendously to prevent sticking...if the potatoes are especially starchy they tend to stick even with olive oil....I have actually rinsed and dried them, then tossed in olive oil....they are worth the effort tho!!
