8. Baked New Potatoes with Chives

I usually make this dish when there are a lot of people to feed, such as during the holidays. Take a 9 x 13 baking dish and lightly coat the bottom with olive oil. Use a pastry brush to make the coat of oil as thin as possible. Wash the new potatoes and slice them almost all the way through in very thin slices. When you finish, the potato should look like you could use it as a recipe card holder for about 6 or 7 cards. Spread a bit of butter or margarine on top of each potato and sprinkle with chives. Bake these at 450 degrees for about 30 minutes.
