Armadillo Taters

These things are so simple, and yet so divine. I must share.

What you need:

  • A potato.

Okay, and some:

  • grated cheddar cheese
  • butter (please, for honesty’s sake, don’t use margarine.)
  • kosher salt
  • garlic powder
  • parsley
  • paprika
  • ground black pepper
  • sour cream



Here’s What You Do:


  1. You can do it the quick way or the hard way. The potato tastes the same in the end…so I’m not even going to TELL you the hard way.
  2. Put the cleaned potato in the microwave.  Push the potato button. (if you don’t have a potato button, do 4 minutes)
  3. Okay, now, take it out with potholders (speaking from experience here), and place it in a baking dish.
  4. Let it cool for 5 minutes, and then slice it width-wise.
  5. Now, place little slivers of butter and grated cheddar cheese in between the slices.
  6. Then, sprinkle the kosher salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder and parsley on top.
  7. Spray with PAM
  8. Bake at 400F for another 5 minutes.


Enjoy with a good heaping of sour cream, and Heretic Brewing craft beers!
