For a festive presentation, Tressa Surdick slices into the tops of baking potatoes to "fan" them, then seasons them with herbs and butter. "Guests rave about these potatoes," she writes from Bethel Park, Pennsylvania.

    This makes a nice presentation. I wouldn't use the salt, or at least as much of it. Between the Italian seasonings and the cheeses, the salt is not needed for someone trying to cut back on it. I will make these again because they do have very good flavor.

    These potatoes make a very nice presentation. My husband and I try to find ways to cut back on salt, so the next time I make them I will eliminate the salt, or at least cut back on it. Between the Italian seasonings and the cheeses salt is really not needed.
