Crumb-Coated Potato Halves

Dressing up potatoes is a snap with this easy method. What I like best about the recipe is that I can pop the baking dish of coated potatoes into the oven at the same time as my meat loaf. It's a great side dish with roasts, poultry and pork chops as well. -Shirley Leister, West Chester, Pennsylvania

    I stumbled across this family-favorite recipe while browsing through some TOH issues, looking for meal ideas. This dish was very popular when our six children were home. I added 1 tsp. of garlic powder to the crumb mixture, & some of our kids would dip the potatoes in spaghetti sauce! A very versatile recipe to suit to your family's tastes!

    If you're in a hurry or worried about time, partially cook your potato halves in the microwave. That will give you a head start.

    My large potatoes must have been too large, because they took almost 2 hours to bake. Next time I will raise oven temp to 375 or 400. I might also skip the Italian seasoning and use some Parmesan instead. Not a bad recipe, but needs some adjusting. Very easy!
