  • 1 stick (4 ounces) salted butter, melted
  • cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 ½-2 pounds small, yellow potatoes (Yukon gold or similar)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • Preheat an oven to 400℉. Add the melted butter to the baking dish, spreading to coat the bottom. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the cheese, breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and paprika. Sprinkle evenly on top of the melted butter.
  • Using a paring knife, slice each of the potatoes in half lengthwise, then score the cut side in a crosshatch pattern. This will help the butter mixture soak into the potatoes as they bake.
  • Place the potato halves, cut side down, in the baking dish, then drizzle the tops with the olive oil.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until they are browned and easily pierced with a fork. Remove from the dish, then let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
