Potatoes on the Side

Well, I'm back.  Not completely healed, but ready to blog (read: I still keep a bandaid on my finger 24/7 and do not use my middle finger to type).

I made these potatoes two weeks ago, or so.  They were a nice change of pace from the usual roasted seasoned potatoes and mashed potatoes.  Not only that, but I think they make for a nice presentation.  I found the recipe on Dinners for a Year and Beyond.  If you are ever in a dinner funk go to this blog for some inspiration!

5 potatoes (serves 5 people)
1 stick of butter, melted
1 cup of seasoned bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash and scrub the potatoes really well.  Cut a small slice out of the bottom of the potato so it won't roll around.  Cut 1/4 inch vertical slices, but make sure you don't cut all the way through the potato.  Tear a sheet of foil for each potato.  Place the potato on the foil and sprinkle with salt a pepper.  Then pour butter and the bread crumbs over the top.  My suggestion: try to open up some of the slits and pour butter and bread crumbs in the potato and not just over the top.  Wrap in foil and bake for 45 minutes, then open the foil and continue baking for 15 minutes.

Thank you to my readers and friends who have been concerned about my finger.  I still don't like to look at it and may or may not have permanently altered my finger print on that finger by slicing and dicing it.  (Isn't that lovely to think about? I think not.)

Looks good! My mom made some that looked like that but I'm not sure what she put in it... I know there were slivers of garlic inbetween... Yum!
