3Russet Potatoesmedium, washed and chopped into 1/2" pieces. (No need to peel, it adds a little more nutrition to a nutritionless dish)
1CupParmesan CheeseKraft, in the can, depending on the size of your potatoes
1/2StickUnsalted Butterthe cheese will add enough saltiness
Heat the oven to 425.
Place the butter in a 9x13" baking dish.
Stick the pan in the oven and allow the butter to completely melt.
Remove the pan from the oven once the butter is melted and set on the stove top.
Dump all of the potatoes into the dish and use a large spoon to toss the potatoes in the melted butter.
Put the parmesan cheese into a large ziploc. Add the buttery potatoes, seal the bag and toss to coat evenly.
Dump all of the potatoes back into the baking dish and place in the hot oven.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until all potatoes are tender and the cheese is beginning to turn golden. Mine almost always take thirty minutes, however the last time I made them I must have made them extra small because it only took 20 minutes. I would just keep a close eye on them.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with fresh parsley.
If you have any leftovers you can reheat them, but you'll want to do so in the oven to re-crisp the cheese. Trust me.
