take two table knives or two wooden spoons and lay wax paper over them
Begin slicing 1/2 inch slices along the potato. The knife handles keeps from cutting all the way through. Potato will fan out but stay together. (wax paper moved to aid in photo) If you cut a slice at an angle you will cut it out of the whole. Just stick it back in for cooking it will stay put.Drizzle with butter approximately 2 to 3 tablespoons per 4 potatoes
Pull layers open and drizzle right inside or the butter will just run off. It takes a minute but isn't hard to do.
Bake at 425 degrees F. for about 50 minutes
Remove from oven and add 4 tbsp of graded cheddar cheese and a nice shake of Parmesan cheese.
Bake another 10 to 15 minutes until lightly browned, cheeses melted and potatoes soft when poked with a fork.
Now doesn't that make a tasty looking side dish? Yummy.
