Preheat the oven to 425˚F.

Wash baby potatoes, then cut them in half. Add potatoes to a large pot of water. Boil the potatoes until you can just pierce them with a fork. Set aside to cool.

In a small bowl stir together cheese, truffle oil, bread crumbs, garlic salt, paprika, and black pepper.

Brush 1 tablespoon of melted butter into the bottom of a glass 10”x 14” baking dish.

Sprinkle cheese mixture evenly over brushed butter, in the baking dish.

Press the cut-side of potatoes into the cheese mixture.

Carefully brush the tops of potatoes with remaining butter and season with salt.

Bake potatoes and cheese for 10-15 minutes, watching carefully. You want the cheese to melt and just about stop bubbling. Do NOT let it get dark brown though, as it will be bitter.

While potatoes are cooking, mix sour cream, garlic salt, dill, onion powder, chives and pepper in a small bowl.

Remove the potatoes from the oven and break apart any cheddar crisp pieces connecting the potatoes together.

Transfer potatoes to a platter and top with chives. Serve with sour cream dip for dipping if you want.
