This is my family's favorite potato recipe! So simple yet so delicious. They smell so good cooking too. I'd rather have these than a traditional baked potato.

Could Yukon Gold potatoes work instead of red potatoes?

So simple to make but I do add more butter and much more Parmesan and bake until the potatoes are tender and cheese forms a very crispy crust. We also add a little salt at the table. Yummm!

These were just okay.

(Updated comment)These looked amazing! And they tasted pretty darned good too, with a dash more salt. But the first time I made them they were a bit on the wet side of creamy. I've made them a few times since, and recommend using Russet potatoes -- larger ones, so they bake for about 45 minutes -- and poking a few holes in the potatoes to let steam escape.

Needs more flavor added, i.e., garlic, pepper, etc.

I've been making these since the recipe first came out. I use salted butter and real parmesan cheese grated on my microplane. Sometime I add a piece of fresh dill or parsley to the cut sides of the potatoes before I add to the pan for a decorative touch. Everyone I've ever served these to loves them and they are so easy.

So simple and so delicious!! Potatoes melt in your mouth. I must confess though...I melted enough butter to amount to about 1/4" deep and then sprinkle lots of parm (about 1/4 of a cup) in the butter.

I'm going to be in the minority and say that this was just ok. Honestly I thought it was a bit bland. The parmesan just wasn't enough. Maybe next time I'll use salted butter. That might help. I unfortunately didn't read the other reviews so I didn't know to tweak it. I may give this another shot with the tweaks, but as-is, it's just an ok recipe.

Excellent, and so easy! I used russet potatoes, and followed other reviewers' advice and added salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. I didn't measure out the cheese either. I just sprinkled it on until the entire bottom of the pan had a nice even coating. These were very good!
