Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Melt butter and pour into a 9X13 inch pan and spread evenly across the bottom.

Step 3

Generously sprinkle Parmesan cheese and lightly sprinkle other seasonings all over the butter.

Step 4

Place potato halves face down on the butter and seasonings.

Step 5

Place in preheated oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes.

Step 6

Cool for at least a FULL 5 minutes before removing from the pan, otherwise the Parmesan crust won't stick to the potato.

Step 7

Serve on a plate with a side of sour cream for dipping.

These are a delicious side that's super easy to make. Great with sour cream or ranch or even ketchup which is how DH like them.

Oh my...these are absolutely delicious!! I used a yellow fleshed (waxy) potato which was crispy on the outside and very creamy on the inside. Pure heaven! I used Grana Padano in lieu of the Parmesan. Baked these before I broiled the short ribs so they sat in the pan on the stove top for a good 10 the cheese really stuck to the potatoes. The family made short order of these beauties! Another Teresa favvy here! Thanks for sharing. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
