    Katzen's Note:

    Crispy potatoes, sliced so that the buttery and crispy goodness gets inside... and so pretty, too! From Canadian Living May 2010 Issue.

      These were a big know it's a good thing when the butter-loving children don't ask for any on their potato. I did it slightly different, more by mistake than anything else - I mixed all the ingredients together and then rubbed the mixture all over each potato. As a result they had a nice crispy outer edge and were creamy inside. The potatoes I used were medium russets and they cooked perfectly in the amount of time specified. I'll definitely make these again, they were so easy and so popular around here!

      I've always found baked potatoes rather blah. These are fab! they're like "modern" kicked up baked potatoes. I'll make them again for sure. A couple things. I found the smaller potatoes turned out better (and crispier). Try to get that spice mixture into all your little slices. It's worth the extra time. Used Earth Balance Vegan butter and Yukon Gold potatoes. These have such a great presentation! Thanks Katzen!

      Using russets from our CSA box this was easy to make. I subbed a very small amount of Spanish smoked paprika for standard. After drizzling the butter on the potatoes, I dipped each one lightly in the remaining paprika/flour mixture. Went well with a pan grilled chicken recipe. Pretty presentation, too. Greek oregano replaced thyme because we don't like thyme. Thank you!
