Parmesan Upside Down Baked Potatoes

These potatoes tasted like a baked potatoes with the toppings infused because they bake into the potato. They are easy to make and a great switch up to a regular baked potato!

All you have to do is melt butter in a glass pan, top with shredded parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Then you cut your potatoes in half and lay them face down on top of the parmesan. You can season the other side of the potato, too.

I love how unique these potatoes are in both taste and appearance!

The original recipe called for 1/4 cup of butter, but that seemed way too much.

Three tablespoons are plenty, and next time I might try them with just two and see if that works! If I had fresh rosemary on hand, I would add that too!
