DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • In a bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, cheese, paprika, salt and pepper, and 1 Tbs olive oil.
  • Set the mixture aside.
  • Transform each potato half into a armadillo by cutting 9 or so notches ½ to ¾ inch deep in the rounded top.
  • For each armadillo, cut a square of aluminum foil big enough to loosely wrap around it, brush the center with olive oil, then place the potato on it, flat side down.
  • Sprinkle the top with some of the crumb mixture, pressing it into the grooves, then seal the potato in the aluminum foil.
  • Arrange all of the potatoes on a baking sheet and bake them for 40 to 45 minutes.
  • Be careful opening the pouches – they're hot and probably full of steam.
