Parmesan Baked Potato Halves

These are a nice, different way to prepare potatoes as a side dish! It was super easy, but they do take a while to cook. Some of these had a really good crust on them, and some of them, the crust came off a little. Maybe I needed to let them sit a little longer after I pulled them out of the oven? In any case, good taste, the potatoes were perfectly cooked, and had a good flavor.

Parmesan Baked Potato Halves
(http://www.favfamilyrecipes.com/)
Ingredients:

6 small potatoes, scrubbed and cut in half
1/4 cup butter
grated parmesan cheese
garlic powder
other seasonings (to personal preference)- I used dried parsley

 
Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter and pour into a 9×13 inch pan and spread evenly across the bottom. Generously sprinkle parmesan cheese and lightly sprinkle other seasonings all over the butter. Place potato halves face down on the butter and seasonings. Place in preheated oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Cool for at least a FULL 5 minutes before removing from the pan, otherwise the parmesan crust won’t stick to the potato. Serve on a plate with a side of sour cream for dipping.
