Reviews for Parmesan Baked Potatoes
"So simple and so delicious!! Potatoes melt in your mouth. I must confess though...I melted enough butter to amount to about 1/4" deep and then sprinkle lots of parm (about 1/4 of a cup) in the butter."
"I'm going to be in the minority and say that this was just ok. Honestly I thought it was a bit bland. The parmesan just wasn't enough. Maybe next time I'll use salted butter. That might help. I unfortunately didn't read the other reviews so I didn't know to tweak it. I may give this another shot with the tweaks, but as-is, it's just an ok recipe."
"Excellent, and so easy! I used russet potatoes, and followed other reviewers' advice and added salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. I didn't measure out the cheese either. I just sprinkled it on until the entire bottom of the pan had a nice even coating. These were very good!"
"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?!"
