Scored Potatoes Recipe

These well-seasoned baked potatoes are a fun alternative to plain baked potatoes. It's easy to help yourself to just the amount you want, too, since the potato halves are scored into sections. My mom serves them alongside any meat.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 50 min. YIELD:4 servings

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • 1. With a sharp knife, cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Slice each half widthwise six times, but not all the way through; fan potatoes slightly.
