When baking potatoes, I used to cut them in half, brush with butter, then salt & pepper before baking them, cut side up. Here's a dressed up version of that!

These were pretty good and easy enough, but I felt like they were missing something. Next time, I may use panko crumbs, for a bit more crunch. My potatoes were not especially large, but they needed more than an hour to be done. :( I did leave them covered for the majority of cooking time, but after testing for doneness after an hour, I removed the foil, to hasten the baking time. Maybe I'd up the temp a little too, but it is perfect if you're going to be roasting your meat. Thanks for a new take on potatoes, Syd!
