"I really enjoyed this easy recipe & will make these again. I love any type of potatoes & I always like finding new ideas. Although the taste & idea is nothing to blow anyone away, I love the way these present. When they came out of the oven, they looked just like the picture. I definitely adjusted a few things & would have to even more next time...First, the bake time is way off. I baked these 10-15 minutes longer & most of my potatoes were still pretty hard. I would bake these about 1 1/2 hours. I used much more butter (& would use even more next time), garlic salt, fresh rosemary & thyme, pepper & grated parm cheese. I used a fair amount of each of these & will use even more garlic salt & parm cheese next time. If you have some guests over, this is a great side dish. As another reviewer said, they can get any amount they want & you could even season each potato half different for different tastes."
"Made according to directions and found them very dry and flavorless. Would not use this recipe again"
"I made this last night for the first time and my family loved them.. The favor was great. I did not have any leftovers!!"
"I love this recipe but use Olive Oil. My original recipe was called Hasselback Potatoes. They were scrubbed, left whole and sliced many times from the top almost to the bottom. That allowed OO and seasonings to really sink in and they baked up more crispy. If you cannot easily slice or score them raw, I found that nuking them for 2-3 minutes helps soften, then finish in the oven. Another method to do this is using olive oil, 1/2 to 1 envelop of french onion or similar soup mix, coat in ziploc and let set a bit, then bake in casserole dish until nicely golden and tender. The olive oil coats better and prevent drying out. Thanks for recipe!"
"My teenage daughter loves potatoes of any kind and I was looking for a lower fat alternative to loaded baked potatoes. This was it. My daughter, husband, and I all liked it. I even bought more potatoes so I could make it again."
