With butter, garlic, and cheese as the main ingredients, you know these potatoes will be delicious!


  • 4 russet potatoes (medium)
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 4 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 425° F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. With a sharp knife, make slices in each potato 1/8” apart, stopping 1/4-1/2” below the bottom. Be careful not to cut through the potato.
  4. Arrange the potatoes cut side up on the baking sheet, gently pulling the edges of each to widen the tops. Season the potatoes liberally with salt and black pepper.
  5. Finely mince the garlic cloves and place in a small bowl.
  6. Add the melted butter and Italian seasoning to the bowl. Stir to combine.
  7. Spoon about a Tablespoon of the garlic and herb butter over each potato, letting it seep down into the crevices. Loosely tent the potatoes with a sheet of aluminum foil.
  8. Transfer the baking sheet to the middle rack of the preheated oven.
  9. Bake the potatoes for 40-45 minutes, until they are able to be pierced with a fork, but are not completely tender. Remove the sheet of aluminum foil from the potatoes and discard. Sprinkle a scant Tablespoon of grated parmesan cheese over each potato.
  10. Continue baking the potatoes for 10-15 minutes longer, until they are fork tender and browned and crisp on top.
  11. Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  12. Allow the potatoes to cool for 2-3 minutes, and serve.
