For some reason, I am not a big fan of baked potatoes. If I am cooking them in the oven, I perfer to roast them. One day, I stumbled upon this recipe. With it’s unique look, I had to give it a try. Since it is basically a whole roasted potato, I loved it. It makes a great presentation on a plate.
4 medium baking Potatoes (6oz each), peeled
1/3 cup Butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan Cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Slice each potato crosswise at 1/8 inch intervals, cutting to within 1/4 inch of the bottom. Arrange the potatoes spoke-fashion in a buttered 10-inch pie dish. Drizzle 2 tablespoons melted butter evenly over potatoes & sprinkle the potatoes with salt. Bake potatoes at 425 degrees on middle oven rack for 30 minutes. Sprinkle breadcrumbs over potatoes, drizzle with remaining butter, and bake 20 more minutes. Sprinkle cheese over potatoes, baste with butter in pan, and bake 5 more minutes or until potatoes are golden.
