Potato Fans

When you want something other than a simple baked potato, this recipe does the trick.

4 medium potatoes, peeled
2 TBS butter, melted
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 TBS Parmesan cheese
2 TBS breadcrumbs

Set potato on a large spoon and slice potato into 1/8" slices (do not slice all the way through).  Place potatoes into a bowl of cold water.  Meanwhile, mix paprika, salt, pepper, cheese and breadcrumbs together.  Set aside.  Drain potatoes and place in a greased 9" pan.  Brush with melted butter and bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.  Sprinkle potatoes with seasoning mixture.  Bake another 20 minutes or until done.

* If you are short on time, instead of baking the potatoes the entire time in the oven, microwave them until almost done, sprinkle with seasonings and then place in the oven until browned.
