My husband really liked these, I found them a little bland and a bit dry. I will try this again cooking the potatoes a little longer. Thanks!

Oh yeah, so good! I added seasoning salt and garlic powder. Even my picky toddler liked them! I had baby potatoes so did about 10 of them. They were done in about 35 minutes.

Easy and delicious. Liked by all. Like a silly, I cut the potatoes in half widthwise, so after browning the potatoes, I popped them in the microwave to finish cooking them. I did add salt and pepper to the finished product. Next time, I will put a bit of minced garlic in the butter. Served with Garlicky Chicken for a delicious and easy meal! Thanks for a definite repeat!

Oh My Goodness! These were too easy; fix 'em and forget 'em! My favorite kind of recipe! I did add some seasoning, as suggested by others; some garlic sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. I also used my oven as I was roasting something else; 400 for 40 minutes. They came out perfect! Thanks so much for sharing, tbearmom03.

I was skeptical, but these turned out great. I followed the recipe exactly, but added about 1/2 cup water halfway thru cooking. The potatoes turned out moist and tender with crispy edges.I served them with some shredded cheese and sour cream. Thanks for a tasty and very easy recipe!

These potatoes were very tasty. I used medium sized new white potatoes and cut them in half. I used half olive oil and half butter. I cooked them for about 40 minutes.

These were great! They take less time than a traditional baked potato and more time than those done in the microwave but with better flavor and texture. We added some seasonings while they cooked but did everything else as written. Will go to these often. Thanks tbearmom03!

I tried it and these are fantastic! So simple and genius. I've made them a variety of ways. I've cut the potatoes into french fry shapes, wedges and cubes. I use olive oil and sprinkle salt, pepper in the oil. Delish and easy. Thanks so much posting!!

This is one of those "why didn't I think of this?" recipes -- it's so easy and we loved the golden crusty top on the potatoes. I sprinkled with salt and pepper after they were done and topped with Smart Balance Light, light sour cream and fresh chives.

I love how easy these were to make! Just put em on and they cook themselves! And they were super good! They packed a lot of flavor without having to add salt. We ate ours with sour cream and Mr.s Dash table blend sprinkled on. Yummy!
