For Garlic and Parmesan lovers everywhere ;-)



Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Place the potatoes in a large bowl, drizzle with olive oil; add the garlic, seasoning salt, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan and toss until evenly coated. Remove the potato strips from the bowl and spread onto a nonstick baking sheet in a single layer. Set the olive oil mixture aside.

Bake 30 minutes, turning once. Sprinkle the potatoes with remaining 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese and slightly drizzle with a bit more of the remaining stirred olive oil mixture. Return to the oven and bake until the sprinkled Parmesan cheese melts, about 10 minutes.

Easy and delicious.


  • 2 cans (6 1/2 oz.) shrimp
  • 6 medium baking potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • a dash of pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. grated onion (I finely chop a few green onions)
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 3/4 to 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup grated cheese


Drain shrimp. Bake potatoes in a hot oven, 425 degrees F, for 45 to 60 minutes or until soft. Cut a slice off top of each potato; scoop out insides. Mash potatoes using butter, seasonings, parsley and milk; blend well.

Fold in shrimp and stuff potato shells. Sprinkle cheese over top. Bake in a hot oven, 400 degrees F, until potatoes are reheated and cheese has melted.

For a different baked potato, slice into potato and insert a half slice of onion. Wrap a slice of bacon around the potato. Wrap the potato in foil. Lay potato on a baking sheet, as some of the bacon juice may drip out. Bake as usual.

  3. Fry bacon to crispy and drain
  4. When potatoes are done, let them cool a couple of minutes. Wearing a oven mitt, hold the potato in one hand. With your other hand, cut a large "X" in the potato. Squeeze a little so that some of the potato comes out.
  5. Spoon in butter, then cheese into the opening. Sprinkle the crumbled bacon over the potato.

I love how the potatoes absorb the flavor of the onions in this recipe. Cut 4 squares of foil and place on baking sheet. Peel potatoes and cut into 4 crosswise slices. Spread each with butter.

These crunchy baked potatoes are more like French fries when completed. They are perfect as a dinner side or a snack.

Arrange potatoes in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Combine melted butter and remaining ingredients in small bowl. Pour mixture over potatoes, and turn potatoes to coat evenly.

I think the parmesan cheese in this recipe makes these potatoes extra good!

Putting a metal skewer through a potato speed up the baking time in your electric or gas oven.

Last night for dinner, we all used leftovers with a baked potato as the starter. I had several leftovers in the refrigerator. You can come up with you own leftover toppings. We will continue to do the same at our house. I covered my baked potato with leftover broccoli and cheese.


My husband covered his baked potato with leftover chili, which he also added some chopped onions and shredded cheese to top it off. My daughter used the left over canned corn, to which she added her own concoction of salsa and chopped black olives and some of her Dad's shredded cheese. We each had a delicious and very filling baked potato as the starter.

Oh, I forgot to mention, we each put a little butter on top of the potato and then added the leftover we wanted. This made a great frugal meal and all the leftovers were used.

Prick clean potatoes with fork. Wrap them in foil. Fill Crock-Pot with 6 to 12 potatoes. Cover. Go away. Cook on Low 8 to 10 hours (High: 2 1/2 to 4 hours]. Come back. Don't add water!

White potatoes are very starchy and cause our blood sugars to rise sky high, but sweet potatoes are very good for you. Just bake them, cut a slit on the top of the potatoes and add brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and any other specialty.

I raised four children. To save money and aluminum foil, I cook my baked potatoes in my 5 quart club aluminum cooker. Place clean potatoes in pan with about an inch and a half of water (can add salt to water if you so desire). Bake at 350 degrees F for an hour. They come out moist and delicious!
