``Our favorite way is baked potatoes with butter and sour cream,'' says Lois Crane, speaking for her family. But there are so many ways to eat potatoes, she says. ``You can make a meal out of potatoes.'' Does she ever tire of them? ``I really don't,'' she says. ``If I go for a few days without a potato, I want one.''

These homemade potato chips are good and very easy, she says. 4 medium potatoes (about 1 1/3 pounds) 1/4 cup butter 1 tablespoon grated onion salt and pepper dash paprika (optional) 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Cut washed, unpeeled potatoes into 1/8-inch-thick slices and place in a single layer on lightly buttered baking sheets.

Melt butter in a small saucepan and add onion, salt, and pepper to taste, then paprika.

Brush butter mixture on potatoes and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are crisp and golden. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve at once. Serves 4 to 6.
