I love potatoes, especially baked potatoes, but who has the time to always cooked baked potatoes. I know I don’t.
Baked potatoes take at least an hour and even longer if they are large potatoes. Baked potatoes are not hard at all to cook, but I usually need dinner on the table in a hurry and something that takes over an hour to cook does not often fit into my schedule.
These quick baked potatoes though work great for busy nights. These take much less than an hour. I find that small potatoes can be cooked in about 30-40 minutes like this. That is half the time that baked potatoes usually take.
Not only are they quick and easy, my kids loved them.
Quick Baked Potatoes
4 potatoes, washed and scrubbed clean
3 Tablespoons butter melted
Salt (about 1 teaspoon or to taste)
3-4 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese ( I use the stuff in the green can here. It works best)
Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise.
In a small bowl combine salt and cheese.
Brush each cut half of potato with butter and dip in salt and cheese mixture.
Place cut side down on an oiled cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
