Scored Baby Potatoes

My friend Currié recently made these potatoes for a birthday get together and I loved them. I decided to adapt them a bit by using small baby Dutch potatoes (my friend makes them with russet potatoes). I sliced them in half then scored the potato meat with a sharp knife. I seasoned each potato half with a bit of sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder then baked them until golden brown. I served these potatoes with sour cream and green onion slices. They were tasty, cute, and super simple to make.

Original recipe by Currié
  • Several small Dutch baby potatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • Garlic powder, to taste
  • Onion powder, to taste
  • Paprika, to taste
  • Olive oil cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil then coat it with cooking spray.

Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise then score the potato meat with a sharp knife. Season each scored potato with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika on each top. Spray the tops of the potatoes with a bit of olive oil cooking spray. Place skin side down on the baking sheet.

Bake the potatoes for 15 minutes then flip the potatoes over (meat side down/skin side up) and continue to cook for 15 minutes or until tender and golden brown. Serve the potatoes with sour cream and green onions. Enjoy!

    I love potatoes and have been looking for some new recipes to try as we just stocked up on 50 pound bags of potatoes for winter (only $6 a bag). It's wonderful how many ways they can be prepared.
    These look really good. Will try them tomorrow.
