Parmesan Potatoes

Chop potatoes into bite-size cubes, put in a large ziploc with some olive oil, enough to lightly coat.

In a separate bowl, mix 1 cup flour with 3 Tablespoons Cavenders seasoning and 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese. Pour over potatoes in Ziploc, shake to mix together.

Cut one stick of butter into small slices, coat the bottom of a glass 9x13 pan. Bake at 375 for about 45 minutes or until soft. Stir occasionally.
