Ingredients:  
4 medium all purpose potatoes, peeled
1/3 c. butter, melted and divided
1/2 t. salt
1 T. unseasoned fine dry breadcrumbs
1 T. freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 425.
Slice each potato crosswise at 1/8 inch intervals, cutting to within 1/4 inch of the bottom [Dad found that if you insert a toothpick horizontally at the bottom of the potato, it will stop your knife from cutting too deep]

Arrange potatoes spoke-fashion in a buttered 10- inch pie dish. Drizzle 2 T. melted butter over potatoes, and sprinkle with salt.

Bake potatoes at 425 on middle oven rack for 30 minutes. Sprinkle breadcrumbs over potatoes, drizzle with remaining melted butter, and bake 20 more minutes.

Sprinkle cheese over potatoes, baste with butter that has collected in the pan, and bake 5 more minutes or until potatoes are golden.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
These are easy and elegant. I have never served these to anyone who didn't really like them. I like to add the butter and the cheese muchmore liberally (surprise!) than the recipe calls for. You can adjust these to suit your taste. Also, it is easy to scale this recipe up to serve a crowd---1 potato per guest.
