Hi, I'm Chef Mariko. Today, I am going to show you how to bake potato halves. To get started, you'll want a baking dish. First, add a quarter cup of melted butter. Sprinkle a couple of tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese. A sprinkling of your favorite spice. This is a blend of garlic powder, pepper, onion powder and chili powder. And then, you want to cut your potatoes. For this recipe, I like using smaller potatoes because it gives everything a bite size feel to it. So, cut each potato in half; for this recipe, you'll want to use six potatoes. And I'm using red potatoes for this recipe because they bake up fast and they're absolutely delicious. Now that my potatoes are cut, I just want to place them at the bottom of my baking dish with the cut sides down. This will give the potatoes an opportunity to absorb all the butter and cheese so they'll have a delicious flavor. Now, I'm going to bake my potato halves in the oven at 400 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes until they're tender. While the potato halves are cooking, I'm going to make a little dip to serve them with. Here in a bowl I have a half a cup of sour cream. Then, I'm going to get four green onions and slice them up to add. Now, add the green onions to the sour cream. Add a little bit of fresh ground pepper and stir. To serve my potato halves, I'm going to put them on a serving plate. Oh, look at that flavor, they're already brown and crispy and buttery and cheesy. This is Chef Mariko showing you how to make baked potato halves. Enjoy!
