Simple and totally easy to prepare. Works well as a quick side for meatloaf, hamburgers, or Salisbury Steak, or just plain steak!

These potatoes were yummy! I pulverized the corn flakes in my food processor and I have to say how amazing the potatoes were! Even though I removed the skins prior to baking, the corn flakes them selves acted just like a crunchy skin. Thanks for posting Andi!

What a great idea! It's so hot here I decided to cut the potatoes in half horizontally to reduce the baking time. I brushed even the cut sides with butter & rolled in the crumbs. I loved the results. Crunchy, and with a dab of fat free sour cream we didn't even want extra butter. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

This was so easy and tasted great. A different way to enjoy baked potatoes, I didn't have corn flakes so used panko and that worked great. Had a nice spicey flavor as we added some crushed red peppers to the panko mix. Our potatoes are really big so I too cut them in half before breading and baking. Topped with sour cream
