  5. Place the tray of sliced and coated potatoes into the oven and bake for about an hour, turning them once during the cooking time.
  6. After an hour increase the temperature to 140 degrees and bake for another 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the potatoes or power of the electricity this may be longer.
