Parmesan Baked Potatoes

Spring has sprung, and I am on a roll.  Inspired again to be testing some new recipes.  We eat a lot of potatoes in our house, and it's always a challenge to find a new way to dress them up.  I happened across this recipe and thought, I must give that one a try!  Plus, I knew that I already had fresh parmesan at home.  No additional ingredients needed, bonus!  Here is the recipe:

Parmesan Baked Potatoes
Parmesan Baked Potatoes | Addicted to Recipes

3 potatoes, washed and cut in half
1/4 cup butter, melted
Fresh parmesan cheese
Garlic powder
Montreal steak spice (or other seasonings, depending on your preference)

Preheat oven to 400F.

Melt butter and pour into a 9x9 pan.  Ensure butter is evenly spread across the bottom of the pan.

Sprinkle parmesan cheese over the butter - be generous!  Sprinkle the garlic and any other seasonings over the cheese - use as much as you would prefer.

Lay the potatoes "face down" on top of the butter, cheese and garlic.

Bake for 45 minutes.  Allow to cool slightly before serving.

Serves 3-4

VERDICT
These were MELT IN YOUR mouth good.  Seriously, the potatoes melted in our mouths.  Must have been that lovely layer of butter :-)  And the crispy parmesan cheese topping was perfect.  A nice little balance!  This was an easy, no fuss recipe that we will be sure to make again!

  3. When do you put the potatoes in the pan, and do they go skin side up or down? Looks great though

  5. Not sure how it happened with all that butter, however mine stuck to the bottom of the pan! Any suggestions?

    1. Hi Melissa! I'm not sure why your potatoes would have stuck - there is a lot of butter in the recipe. That is kind of strange. I suppose you could try spraying with cooking spray before, though that's along the same lines as using butter. If anyone has any thoughts, I'd be happy to hear them too!
