"I made these for a luncheon at my house. The guests all enjoyed them and I would make them again for the family. They are very easy to make and did not stick at all in the pan. I used a 13 X 9 glass dish and sprayed the bottom with canola oil before adding the butter. In addition I sprayed olive oil on top of the potatoes before baking. I also added salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder to the butter. Delicious."

"These potatoes are awesome. Only a few ingredients but the end result is great. I made them along side of a chicken dish and it complimented the dish perfectly. Definitely a keeper."

"We loves these! I made half a recipe in an 8" square baking dish, rather than a metal pan, and they were crispy perfect on the bottom. Also, I seasoned with a bit of salt, pepper, garlic powder & onion powder."

"These were quite good for something a little different. The cut sides got nice and crispy brown but I have to say my hubby was appalled by the amount of butter! I made them for the family for our early Easter Dinner so it's not something I will make often but good for a special occasion."

"I lined the pan with parchment paper for easy clean up. I added extra parmasean and salt and pepper, but my husband and I didn't find them to be anything special."

"This recipe was very good but you need to make sure you have enough oil on the bottom of your pan so that the potatoes don't stick. I think next time I will add some oil on the top of the potatoes also and then sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese also to get more of the cheese flavor but overall, very good!!"

"I tried this and it was good, but I would like to figure out how to get more of the parmesan cheese flavor involved...possible by slitting the top to get the cheese incorporated there also?!"

"I recall using this recipe from time to time when it had appeared in the TOH magazine back in 1996. I'd adjusted the recipe by using 1/2 cup melted butter OR margarine and I had used regular potatoes for baking! I baked these potatoes 1 hour at 400o F. Well-I devoured the potatoes-they were finger-licking GOOD! Thank you for sharing this recipe! delowenstein"

"I had chopped my red potatoes up like I always do in little bites when I realized I had not done it the way the recipe called for. So I melted the butter in a bowl and mixed in the fresh grated cheese and chopped potatoes, did add a wee bit of garlic powder and some fresh chopped oregano from the garden, since it was going with an Italian dish. Spread in an even layer on a stoneware sheet baking pan on grill (Just don't ever put cold stuff on baking stone, must be room temp) and they turned out wonderful. Everyone raved about them. This is a keeper."

"Very good. A quick, easy alternative to plain baked potatoes. I sprinkled garlic and onion powder over the cheese before placing the potatoes in the pan. I also basted the potato skins with the butter about half way through cooking which gave the skins a little crisper texture. I normally do not eat potato skins, but I actually ate and enjoyed these. Next time I'll season the skins with a little garlic/onion powder or salt too."
