I'm excited to share this baked potato slices with cheese and bacon recipe with you, so let's dive in!

Step 1: Preparation

Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 Celsius). While it's heating up, grab a large potato. You can peel it if you prefer, but leaving the skins on adds a lovely texture.

Step 2: Slicing and Seasoning

Cut the potato into approximately half-inch slices. Lay them out on a baking pan lined with parchment paper or a baking mat. Drizzle a generous amount of olive oil over the slices, sprinkle with salt, and add a dash of ground black pepper. This simple seasoning will bring out the natural flavors of the potatoes.

Step 3: Roasting

Slide the baking pan into the preheated oven and let the potato slices roast for about 30 minutes or until they become fork-tender and irresistibly gorgeous.

Step 4: Cheesy Goodness

Step 5: Melting Magic

Return the pan to the oven for three to five minutes, just until the cheese melts into a gooey, golden perfection.

Step 6: Finishing Touch
