Crusty Baked Potatoes

This is another 'keeper' from one of my Amish cookbooks. We decided that next time we will drizzle 1/2 stick butter over the potatoes before putting them in the oven. Jenna didn't eat with us the night we made them, but warmed them up later and loved them as leftovers.

Peel potatoes, wash and dry. Cut potatoes in half and roll in butter and then in seasoned cracker crumbs. Place in a greased dish and bake 1 hour at 350.
