Fancy Baked Potatoes

Pin It Since Albert has such simple taste in food I am always trying to find interesting ways to cook the food he loves.  Potatoes are high up on his list of favorite foods.  I saw some pictures of these potatoes on Pinterest and decided to put my own spin on them.  These are elegant enough for a nice dinner, but easy enough to whip up on a week night.

Fancy Baked Potatoes
4 baking potatoes
2 Tbsp butter, melted
garlic salt**
Italian seasoning**
olive oil

1. Wash potatoes.  Cut 1/4 inch slices almost to the bottom, but not quite, so you get the fan effect.  (I had trouble not going all the way through on some of the potatoes so we had fanned potato chunks, but they were still pretty)
2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Arrange potatoes on a foil lined baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.  Pour melted butter over potato tops, making sure it drips between the slices.  Generously season with garlic salt, Italian seasoning and pepper.  Drizzle with olive oil.
3. Bake 40-50 minutes, or until potatoes are tender (baking time will differ depending on the size of your potatoes)
** Feel free to season with any spices you want.
