6 mediums potatoes, peeled
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400°. Slice each potato crosswise at 1/8-inch intervals, cutting to within 1/4 inch of the bottom. Be careful not to cut all the way through.
Arrange potatoes in a buttered roasting pan. Drizzle 2 tablespoons melted butter evenly over potatoes, and sprinkle with salt.
Bake potatoes at 425° for 25 minutes. Sprinkle breadcrumbs over potatoes, drizzle with remaining melted butter, and bake 25 more minutes.
Sprinkle cheese over potatoes, baste with butter in pan, and bake 5 more minutes until potatoes are golden.
This a Swedish version of baked potatoes, with a wonderful seasoned crispy crust that goes well with roasted meats and grilled fish.
