I have been making these for over 25 years. I got the recipe from a fellow teacher in Trevor, Wi! It is a very easy and adaptable recipe. We love the crunchiness from the potatoes cooking in the butter.
For a 9 x 13 pan:
1 stick butter
1/2 t paprika
1/2 t garlic salt
1/2 t pepper
1 /2 t onion salt
Scrub potatoes and slice in half lengthwise. Melt butter in an oven proof pan. I use a 9 x 13 or 8 x 8 or a cast iron skillet. Mix seasonings into the butter and lay the cut side of the potatoes into the butter.
Bake at 400 for 45 minutes or until potatoes are done.
