Parmesan Potato Sticks

PARMESAN POTATO STICKS

1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
6 medium potatoes (about 2 pounds)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 9- by 13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper; mix well and set aside. Peel potatoes and cut lengthwise into quarters; cut each quarter lengthwise into 3 strips. Dip each strip in the melted butter, then in Parmesan mixture, coating completely. Place in a single layer in the baking dish. Pour any remaining melted butter over potatoes. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until potatoes are tender, turning them over once or twice.
