I found this recipe in a Gooseberry Patch Cookbook. It is so easy and so good! I served them with a little sour cream and chopped green onions!

Quick, easy and tasty. I added a sprinkling of garlic powder and pepper. A reviewer said they had a problem with sticking to the dish. Might I suggest using a non stick vessel. I used my non stick, oven going fry pan. A little nudge and out they came. :)

These were delicious and so very easy! Crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside and all I had to do was scrub and halve the potatoes! I just put mine in a 9x13 pan and melted the butter right in the pan while the oven was heating. We served ours with Melt in your Mouth Lemon Chicken (Melt in Your Mouth Lemon Chicken) and a spinach-orange-caramelized onion salad. Perfection!

I finally got a break in the summer weather and could run my oven. These were great! DH was leering at my plate after finishing his! I lined the tray with foil and sprayed the sheet with non-stick stuff. I dried off the cut surfaces, spread the butter on each and sprinkled the cheese, liberally before placing on the foil. I sprayed the skin side and baked for 35 minutes. I really enjoyed the texture. Thanks
