Baked Potato Fans

November 11, 2010

If you are a fan of baked potatoes, but want to kick up the taste without kicking up the calories you will love these.Fun to make, and a different and pretty presentation. A great way to get the kids to eat the vitamin rich skin, with no arguements.

  • 1 baked potato per person
  • 1 T. butter per potato

For two potatoes you will need the following amount of seasonings:

  • 1 T. paprika
  • 1 T. onion salt
  • 1 T. garlic salt with parsley
  • 1 T. dried dill

Make a horizontal slice in your potatoes,going about 2/3 down,DO NOT CUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH!!! You can lie a knife next to the potato to use as a guide.

Microwave about 5 minutes for 2 potatoes. Remove from oven and using a knife as a guide, continue to make horizontal slices across the potato about 1/4 inch wide,never cutting all the way through.

Wrap the bottom portion of the potato in foil.Butter the potato,making sure you open the slices gently allowing the butter to seep in.

Blend your seasonings and sprinkle on top,again making sure to get the seasonings in between the slices.

Bake in 350 degree over for 20-30 minutes for a large potato.

Remove from foil gently and fan out on the plate,here keeping a bone in rib eye company.  Nicely seasoned and no need for extra butter or sour cream. A fresh salad with a bit of blue cheese crumled on top would round this out nicely.
