Potato Fans

You can use small potatoes to make these as a finger food.

4 medium baking potatoes
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
2 Tbsp. melted butter
2 tsp. chopped fresh hers or 2 tsp. dried; such as chives, dill, thyme, caraway seeds, cumin
4 Tbsp. grated cheddar cheese
1 1/2 Tbsp. parmesan cheese

Peel or scrub well the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into "fans" by placing them between two wooden spoons and slicing them numerous times, as close together as possible, allowing the spoon handles to prevent the knife from slicing all the way through. Place potatoes in a baking dish.

Mix the salt, garlic powder, and herbs together in a small dish.

Pinch each potato to fan out the slices slightly and drizzle with melted butter; sprinkle with herb mixture. Bake potatoes until almost fork-tender. Sprinkle with the cheeses and return to the oven 10-15 minutes, till cheese is melted and slightly browned.
