Crispy Potato Halves

My husband and I are now OBSESSED with these potatoes! They take a long time to cook, which sucks when you're throwing something together... but if you have the time, this is the perfect side dish!

Crispy Potato Halves

1 (5 oz) potato
1 tsp. olive oil
dash salt
dash pepper
dash garlic powder
dash onion powder
dash chili powder

Preheat oven to 350.  Slice potato in half length-wise.  Stab the flat side of the potato a few times with a knife. Spread 1/2 tsp oil on the flat side of each half, and sprinkle with the spices. Turn the halves FACE DOWN onto a baking sheet.  Bake at 350 for about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Serve with sour cream and chives.
