Brush 13 x 9 inch baking dish with olive oil. Arrange 1/3 of the potatoes  in the dish, slightly overlapping. Sprinkle with a little of the salt.

The smells coming from your kitchen when making this will probably have your neighbors forming lines outside your door. My husband always comes in and says, ‘Man, that sure does smell good. Too bad dinner is not today”

This is rich but ever so good.  Now say, Damn, I did this…your guests will be impressed for sure.
