Step 1

Cut the potatoes in half on a cutting board. Put parmesan cheese and spices to taste on a paper plate. Put olive oil on a small non-porous plate (preferably one with a slight dip in the middle, such as Pfaltzgraff.)

Step 2

Cover a cookie sheet with foil; Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 3

Dip the potatoes (cut side down) in the olive oil, then dip in the parmesan cheese mixture (rub around and press a bit), then place the potatoes on the cookie sheet.

Step 4

I usually pour any remaining olive oil and parmesan cheese mixture over the top of the potatoes.

Step 5

Bake for approx. an hour, until a fork easily pierces the potatoes.

These make a good side dish to a meat entrée and a veggie or a salad.
