– 4 large potatoes (Russet or Yukon Gold work well)
– 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
– Salt and pepper to taste
– Optional toppings: shredded cheese, bacon bits, chopped green onions, sour cream, salsa, or any of your favorite toppings!

### Instructions:
1. **Preheat the Oven:** Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup.

2. **Prepare the Potatoes:** Scrub the potatoes clean under running water and pat them dry with a paper towel. With a sharp knife, carefully slice each potato into thin slices, making sure not to cut all the way through; leave about 1/8 inch at the bottom so that the slices stay connected.

3. **Season the Potatoes:** Place the sliced potatoes on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil generously over the potatoes, making sure each slice is coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste, ensuring the flavors permeate through every layer.

4. **Bake to Perfection:** Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven and bake for about 45-55 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy on the edges, and tender in the center. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of your potato slices, so keep an eye on them towards the end.

5. **Add Toppings:** Once the potatoes are done baking, feel free to get creative with your toppings! Sprinkle shredded cheese between the slices and return the potatoes to the oven for a few minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Then, garnish with your favorite toppings like crispy bacon bits, chopped green onions, dollops of sour cream, or zesty salsa.

6. **Serve and Enjoy:** Remove the sliced baked potatoes from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving. Arrange them on a platter and watch as your guests marvel at the crispy layers and flavorful toppings. These irresistible potatoes are sure to disappear in no time!
