    This is a very good way to make tasty, attractive potatoes in a very short period of time! I've made this with both olive oil and melted butter, and it's so easy to trade out the seasonings of your choice. I like seasoned salt, onion powder, and parsley flakes. I also use the wooden spoon handle tip--place wooden spoon handles on either side of the potatoes and just cut down till the knife blade touches the handles.

    I didn't have an sour cream or green onions and I thought it might be missed, but it was great without it! And I used beef broth because that is what I had on hand and it didn't seem to make a difference.

    We baked our potatoes at 350F for about an hour. It could have used a bit more salt, but overall a good potato.***TIP***To slice the potato, place the round handle of a wooden spoon in front of the potato, it will stop the knife and help you not cut through.

    Next time I'm going to try baking them. We enjoy the texture and it seems there is more flavor from a baked potato.

    This is delicious and very quick and easy. I have used different spices (what I have on hand) and it turns out great. Another thing this potato is pretty on the plate a great idea for entertaining.
