Anyway You Slice It

Looking to have a baked potato sometime. Well then this is the way to go. I have had this recipe in my recipe book for quite sometime and this is the first time I have made it. I sure have been missing out by not having tried this recipe sooner. You would not believe how flavorful these potatoes were. I was quite impressed. This is definitely the way to have your baked potatoes from now on. Give this recipe a try, you will be so glad that you did.

Sliced Baked Potatoes
(Great American Recipes)

4 medium potatoes
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (parsley, chives, thyme and sage)
4 tablespoons grated cheddar cheese
1 1/2 tablespoon parmesan cheese

Peel potatoes if the skin is tough, otherwise just scrub and rinse them. Cut potatoes into thin slices but not all the way through. Use a handle of a spoon to prevent the knife from cutting all the way through the potato. Put potatoes in a baking dish. Fan them slightly. Sprinkle with salt and drizzle with butter. Sprinkle with herbs. Bake potatoes at 425 degrees for 50 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheeses. Bake potatoes for another 10 to 15 minutes until lightly browned, cheeses are melted and potatoes are soft inside. Check with a fork.
