Criss Cross Potatoes

Mom’s Potatoes

My mom is here helping me organize the house. She is a machine and I have to yell at her to stop! Anyway, I thought of these potatoes that she used to make when we were kids. They are called criss cross potatoes…..  I guess my brother will be making these tonight!

Criss Cross Potatoes

3 medium baking potatoes
