Scored Potatoes

[Psst…don’t forget tomorrow’s Recipe Round Up. See details at the bottom of this post.] 
  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Take a sharp knife and cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Slice each half widthwise part of the way through six times. Fan the slices a little.

  2. Place scored potatoes in a shallow baking pan. Brush them with 1 tablespoon melted butter. Sprinkle them with paprika, parsley, salt and pepper.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 50 minutes or until tender. When tender, drizzle with remaining butter and serve. 

Makes four servings. This is yet another recipe from Taste of Home magazine.

I served these Sunday night with oven fried chicken drumsticks. It’s a convenient combination because both dishes bake for about the same amount of time.

I’ve posted the recipe to another of my favorite potato side dishes, Baked Mashed Potatoes, here.
