  • 1/4 c. minced chives or green onion
  • 3 T dry bread crumbs
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 T Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350.  Peel and dry potatoes.
  • Cut a thin slice off long side of potatoes so they sit flat.  Cut vertical slits from top almost to bottom of each potato.

  • Combine cheeses, chives (or green onions) and bread crumbs.
  • Remove potatoes from oven, allow to cool slightly.
  • Set oven to broil.
  • Carefully fill slits with cheese mixture — sprinkle any remaining over tops.  Sprinkle with pepper.
  • Broil until golden brown — watch closely.
