Whole baking potatoes are rolled in garlic butter and bread crumbs and baked. These are really delicious.


  1. Melt butter with garlic and allow to set for 15 minutes.
  2. Combine bread crumbs with salt, black pepper, parsley and paprika.
  3. Wash, peel potatoes and pat dry leaving them whole.
  4. Roll potatoes in butter and coat evenly with bread crumb mixture.
  5. Place potatoes in shallow buttered casserole and add any leftover butter to bottom of casserole.
  6. Cover and bake at 350° for 40 minutes.
  7. Uncover and bake for 20 minutes more, turning to brown evenly.

I don't know what I did but there was no way I could get the crusty covering onto these potatoes. They just would not stick for me at all. I ended up with potatoes sitting on top of overdone breadcrumbs. Sorry Marie just did not work for me for some reason!!

These were very good with a nice crispy coating. My husband said he liked them! I love the garlic flavor. I had lots of breading left over which I will use to coat fish. Thanks marie for a different, yummy way to fix potatoes!

Thank you, thank you Marie for sharing your recipe. These potatoes are just excellant. My family and I really enjoyed these crispy, crunchy, tender and oh so flavourful potatoes. They were very easy to make. We will be having these again real soon. I didn't have any fresh garlic, so I used the garlic butter that I had on hand. I also added some jerk seasoning instead of black pepper.(personal preference)
