Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. While oven is preheating, place ¼ cup of butter on a large pan or cookie sheet (as long as it has sides). Place in the oven to allow the butter to melt.
When the butter is melted, remove pan from the oven and sprinkle your seasonings over the butter. When I'm in a hurry, I will just do seasoning salt, but you can do whatever your family enjoys.
Place potatoes cut side down on the butter. Using a pastry brush, brush some of the excess butter onto the backs of the potatoes so they get crispy and flavorful as well.
Bake 30-40 minutes, depending on the size of your potatoes. You can always check the doneness of a potato but poking it with a sharp knife. If the knife comes out easily without resistance, your potatoes are done. Cool for a full 5 minutes before removing from the pan.
