Foodie Friday- Italian Baked Potatoes

We didn't really get a Christmas dinner this year.  On Christmas Eve is when we celebrated with family and I gorged on homemade pizza and cookies at the first house and pigs in a blanket at the second house.  On Christmas Day we had a nice breakfast before the kids went with their dad then I pretty much hung out on the couch for most of the day.  We cooked a few frozen pizzas at some point and went to be early.  While this was all my idea and I enjoyed just loafing on Christmas Day I still kinda wanted a nice dinner.  So we bought a ham and had a late Christmas/New Years dinner on New Years day.  I was going to make ham, bread, and homemade scalloped potatoes but then I saw this random photo/recipe post on Facebook last week for these amazing looking potatoes and mad them instead.

The post said for you to bake the potatoes at 375 covered for an hour and a half or something of the sort but I couldn't do that since I was baking a ham at 275 and only have one oven.  So I improvised...

I first boiled my potatoes
Once they were cool I cut them almost all the way through into slices but not quite.
 I put them in a greased cast iron skillet (I'm sure any pan will do)
Sprinkled them with garlic salt and an Italian dressing mix
Placed small slabs of butter all around
Added some shredded parmesan cheese...

Then broiled them to perfection.

Then we ate them all and they were good!

Sorry I can't find the original Facebook post I adapted these from.  If anyone knows please let me know in the comments so I can give credit where credit is due!
