With changes this recipe is very good, I added seasoning salt, garlic powder, pepper & parmesan cheese to seasoned bread crumbs, I also baked first 1/2 hr covered like a nother viewer suggested, I also sprayed a little butter on after uncovering potatoes for a crispier topping, cooked till tender & topped with bacon crumbs & sour cream

This was not at all what I thought it would be. It needs the salt cut in half, and the texture on the outside didn't quite mesh well with the texture on the inside. My honey loves potatoes, and he had some of these left on his plate. That said it all. Will not make these again.

I had forgotten about this recipe. Thank you for reminding me how good it is. I always used Italian breadcrumbs and baked them, covered, for 1/2 an hr. Uncover and bake until tender. Excellent with roast turkey or chicken.

Loved it and so did the family. I love EASY recipes. Thanks

Delicious! I used Panko crumbs for the bread crumbs - added a pinch of chili powder with the paprika and other spices. I had to peel my potatoes though because they were starting to sprout. Mine were medium sized potatoes and cooked beautifully crisp in about 45 minutes. Hubby really liked these - he said that wedges would be good so you get more of the crispy coating. Next time - and there will be a next time. :)

I thought these had a nice texture and good flavor, and were a nice change to standard seasoned roasted potatoes. I don't quite understand complaints that they were dry. Baked potatoes without condiments are dry. I still thought the taste was good, not overwhelming, didn't steal the spotlight from the main dish. Will definitely be making these again. Thanks =)

These potatoes were great. I didn't find them bland, but I added some different spices, like garlic powder, season salt and paprika. I am currently on the weight watchers program and with in nutritional values supplies each serving is 2 points. Thanks for a great recipe.

Very good--will make again. I did not think these were bland at all. However, it did take quite a bit longer to cook than it says.
