Sliced Baked Potatoes

These are something else my mom made when I was growing up. Really yummy, easy, and different way to fix potatoes. I can't believe I haven't fixed them more often!!

Sliced Baked Potatoes

4 med. even potatoes
1 tsp. salt
2-3 tbsp. melted butter
2-3 tbsp. chopped fresh herbs, such as chive, parsley, thyme, sage or 2-3 tbsp. dried herbs you choose
4 tbsp. grated cheddar cheese
1 1/2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese

Peel potatoes if the skin is bad, otherwise just scrub and rinse them. Cut potatoes into thin slices BUT not all the way through. Use a handle of a spoon to prevent knife from cutting all the way. Put potatoes in a baking dish. Fan them open slightly. Sprinkle with salt and drizzle with butter. Sprinkle with herbs. Bake potatoes at 425 degrees for about 50 minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake potatoes for another 10 to 15 minutes until lightly browned, cheeses are melted and potatoes are soft inside. Check with a fork. Serves 4.
