Elegant Baked Potatoes

A stylish way to serve Prince Edward Island potatoes. Crisp on the outside. Lots of flavour on the inside.

  • 1 tbsp/15 mL chopped fresh parsley or thyme OR
  • 1 tsp/5 mL dried parsley or thyme
  • 1/4 cup/50 mL grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp/30 mL grated Parmesan cheese

Scrub potatoes. Cut, crosswise, into thin slices, using the handle of a wooden spoon to prevent knife from cutting all the way through. Put potatoes in a baking dish; fan slightly. Drizzle with butter. Sprinkle with salt and herbs. Bake potatoes in 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) oven for 50 minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with cheeses. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until lightly browned and cheeses are melted. Makes 4 servings.
