6 potatoes, halved lengthwise
1/4 cup butter
Grated Parmesan cheese
Other seasonings (I used onion powder and chili powder, but the sky's the limit here)
While preheating your oven to 400F, melt butter in a 9x13-inch pan. Remove the pan from the oven and spread the butter evenly across the bottom. Generously sprinkle parmesan cheese and lightly sprinkle other seasonings over the butter. Place potato halves face down on the butter and seasonings.
Bake 40 to 45 minutes.
Cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from the pan, otherwise the parmesan crust won't stick to the potato.
Serve with a side of sour cream or ranch dressing for dipping.
