These are delicious, but when we used the broiler with the parchment paper it caught on fire.

I have never used parchment paper when I have broiled anything. It is only recommended to use parchment paper up to a temp of 450 degrees (depending on the brand).

But the instructions for this recipe say to put the potatoes on a parchment lined baking sheet, bake, then broil. Do you remove the parchment at any point? If so, you need to put that in the instructions.

I removed the instruction to have it broil for 1-2 minutes :)
