These potatoes are ridiculously easy, tasty and look fancy!
Scrub and wash your potatoes.
Using a fork as a guideline, cut in between tines at regular intervals. Do not cut all the way through. Laying a knife on each side of the potato as you cut will help you from going all the way through the potato and ensure an even depth cut.
Put a pat of butter of choice in between each slit. Drizzle with olive oil. We used Earth Balance Soy Free butter and Stillwater Olive Company Garlic olive Oil. If you want really over the top potatoes, slip a slice of cheese in each slit.
Sprinkle with extra garlic powder, Real Salt, and dried parsley. Pepper would be great too. If you can do Parmesan, feel free to add that as well.
Bake at 400 degrees for 40-60 minutes depending on the size of your 'tators.
To serve, crumble bacon over them. Maybe more cheese. Hmmm... maybe I should make these tonight!
