These little gems will have everyone begging you for the recipe when you take them to your next gathering! They are very easy to make even if you don’t classify yourself as a “chef” or “good in the kitchen”. Are you a bachelor? No worries. Anyone can make these potatoes and will be very proud of the outcome!
This is another recipe that you will be able to change up when you make them. I love garlic so I usually use a mix that I have from Frozen Creek Farms called Manhattan Style Boursin Cheese Seasoning Mix. It is wonderful and if you love Boursin Cheese like I do, this mix is an absolute must to keep in your pantry. You only need a couple of teaspoons added to 8 oz. of no fat cream cheese (I have contacted the company to see if they are still making it and will give the link to you as soon as I hear back from them).
Another cheese you can stuff the mini potatoes with is Laughing Cow Garlic or Tomato Basil and you can always add your own herbs to no fat cream cheese to create a spicy mix of your own! Enjoy 🙂 Questions and comments firstname.lastname@example.org
Creamy Herb Stuffed Mini Potatoes
1 pound of New Potatoes or any small potato
8 oz of cheese mixture (Laughing Cow or Boursin or you own creation) Room temp
Boil potatoes until slightly firm. Drain and cool. Slice potatoes in half. Gently using a small scoop or measuring teaspoon, scoop out 1/3 of potato insides. If you potato halves don’t sit upright carefully cut a slice of the bottom of the half. Spray lightly with olive oil. Bake in oven at 350 until slightly browned (depending on your oven, check in 8-10 min.) Cool to room temp
Place your cheese mixture in a freezer zip lock bag (less likely to break). Squeeze down to one corner and cut just a bit of the bag so you can push the cheese mixture through the hole. Now this is where you can get fancy if you choose to. IF you have a decorating tip place that in the bag after you have snipped a small hole in one corner. Then put your cheese mixture into the bag.
Pipe mixture into half of each potato, about 1 Tlb. should fit. If you are not going to serve right away, place in frig but bring out before you sever them to get the potatoes to room temp. Sprinkle with cilantro or parsley one you put them on your serving tray.
These stuffed potatoes are good for you, low in fat and very filling! Kids will love them too 🙂
