Parmesan Baked Potatoes with Herbs and Garlic and ..........

These potatoes are cut in half and baked with the cut side down in a baking dish.
The recipe can be altered depending on how many people you need to serve.
It's not a specific recipe, but a concept for an alternative to the traditional Baked Potato.

It can definitely be adapted to your personal taste.
For example:
Add fresh chopped herbs like, parsley, dill, tarragon.
Add minced garlic or garlic powder with the parmesan cheese.

You can make them your own.
Here's the basic concept:

4 TBS butter melted
4 - 6 potatoes, cut in half, lengthwise
2 TBS grated parmesan cheese
see additional ingredients above to be creative.

Simply coat the bottom of a casserole dish with the melted butter.
In this recipe for 4 - 6 potatoes, it takes a 9"X13" casserole dish.
Adjust the size pan and the amount of the other ingredients for the amount of potatoes used.

Sprinkle cheese over the melted butter
Place the potatoes, cut side down in the pan
Bake at 400 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes or until tender.

I like to add herbs and fresh garlic or garlic powder on top of the melted butter and then add the potatoes.
Salt and pepper to taste when the potatoes are done baking.

Today, I made them with Butter, Fresh cut Dill from the garden, dried Dill Weed and French Gray Sel de Mer. I'm looking forward to trying a variety of herbs and seasonings.
Experiment and create your own!

Serve with Sour Cream, Chives, Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Bacon Bits, additional Butter.

Peace in the Kitchen!
