I love these parmesan baked potato halves, they make the perfect side dish. This is my go to recipe for a potato side when we have company, they are super easy, delicious, and give you the benefits of a baked potato without all the mess on your plate! We especially love dipping these in a side of sour cream but ranch dressing is also REALLY good!
This recipe has quickly become a fan favorite on our site, and for good reason! We have gotten so many great comments from our readers about how much they love these potatoes. They really are THAT good!
See the instructional video below and the recipe below that.
- 6 small potatoes, scrubbed and cut in half
- 1/4 cup butter
- grated parmesan cheese
- garlic powder
- other seasonings (to personal preference)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter and pour into a 9x13 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.
