Fancy Fan Potatoes

This old family recipe is a classic on my mother's side of the family. It's very easy to make and so delicious that even my potato-shy 5-year-old has been known to eat it without complaining. It looks fancy enough to be served to dinner guests, but easy enough to make for a regular family dinner (as the main coarse). Surprisingly, it is even good as leftovers!

Note: This recipe is vegetarian-friendly!

4 medium-sized potatoes
1/4 c. soft butter
1 Tb. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. dried dill seed or weed (I prefer the latter)
1/8 tsp. black pepper

Grease baking dish and wash potatoes.

Cut potatoes in 1/4" wide slices to within an inch from bottom. Place in greased dish.

Melt butter in small bowl, add spices; mix. Drizzle butter mixture over potatoes, making sure slices are slightly separated so mixture gets down inside.

Cover dish with foil and bake at 425 for about 45 minutes.

If you want potatoes a little extra crispy, remove foil and allow to bake for 10-15 minutes more.
