I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

French Baked Potatoes

This was one of my son Nathan's favorite type of potato when he was young. It still may be. It is so easy to make. This is usually deep fried, but I like it much better the way I make it.


FRENCH BAKED POTATOES. (serves 4)

Ingredients:
*4 medium sized Idaho potatoes, cleaned
*1 tablespoon butter, softened (or spray pan with a cooking spray)

Directions:
~Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
~Cut potatoes in half lengthwise.
~Spread butter on a cookie sheet.
~Place potatoes cut side down on top of butter.
~Cut a small slit on top of each potato.
~Bake in the preheated oven for 30-50 minutes until the bottom of the potato is a golden brown and crispy and potato is tender.

Variation:
`Deep fry potato in oil (350 degrees) until potato is done.
`Put a little butter and fresh rosemary into the slits on top of the potato.
`When potato is done, and plated, add butter, sour cream, chopped chives, crumbles bacon.


Helpful Hint: Try to keep the potatoes all around the same size, this helps with even cooking of the potatoes.
