"Great flavor, served with barbecued ribs and everyone loved them. Scoring the potatoes made it very easy to get the size portion you wanted with no waste."
"I'd prepared these potatoes & instead of using parsley, I'd used 1 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese! I kept the paprika, butter, salt and pepper the same! I found this side dish delicious! I'd baked these potatoes 50 to 60 minutes or until potatoes were tender! Thank you for this recipe!delowenstein P.S.. I'd prepared this recipe when I'd seen it featured in Taste of Home!"
"I added a few other herbs and some garlic powder :) Very easy and a cute way to spice up a regular dish to make it into something just a little different."
"I made these tonight and they were pretty good. For some reason, I had trouble cutting them evenly, so some were thicker than others and had to be finished in the microwave. (Although I realize the fault is mine, not the recipes...it was just harder to put together than I thought it would be.) They had good flavor. I ended up using all the melted butter (actually I used margarine) before putting them in the oven, and no one thought they needed more after. I used parsley flakes, as I didn't have any fresh on hand. I also sprinkled garlic powder on them. Pretty tasty!"
"Inexpensive and easy!!! I make these all the time."
