Scored Baby Potatoes

Scored Baby PotatoesMy friend Currié recently made these potatoes for a birthday get-together and I loved them. I decided to adapt them a bit by using small baby Dutch potatoes (my friend makes them with russet potatoes). I sliced them in half then scored the potato meat with a sharp knife. I seasoned each potato half with a bit of sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder then baked them until golden brown. I served these potatoes with sour cream and green onion slices. They were tasty, cute, and super simple to make.

Scored Baby Potatoes:


  • Several small Dutch baby potatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • Garlic powder, to taste
  • Onion powder, to taste

  1. I love potatoes and have been looking for some new recipes to try as we just stocked up on 50 pound bags of potatoes for winter (only $6 a bag). It's wonderful how many ways they can be prepared.
    These look really good. Will try them tomorrow.
