Potato nibblesJune 27th, 2009 | Written by jfolkmann | Topic: Sides, Snacks
These potato nibbles are a perfect summer snack. Although it takes a little bit of work to make these, they’re well worth it. If you’re having them for a party, just make them in advance – cover and refrigerate until you’re ready to broil them. Tip: Grapefruit spoons are a great way to scoop out the tiny potatoes.
- Preparation time
- Cooking time
- 20 new potatoes (halved lengthwise)
- ½ cup Plain yoghurt
- 3 cloves garlic
- Olive oil
- Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350F. Cut 20 new potatoes in half lengthwise and put them on a cookie tray. Add 3 garlic cloves to the tray (skins on). Rub a little olive oil on the white bit of the potatoes and put the tray in the oven for 20-25 minutes (or until soft). Remove potatoes from the oven and let them cool.
Once cool to the touch, with a small spoon carefully scoop out the middle of each potato – try not to break the potato skins. Place all of the scooped potato into a large bowl. Squeeze the roasted garlic into the bowl and add the yoghurt. Season to taste. Mash the potato mixture to your desired consistency. I like mine a little chunky…but whipped would be just as good.
Scoop little spoonfuls of potato back into the hollow skins. Grate some Parmesan cheese over top and place under a hot broiler for a few minutes until the cheese melts and the tops of the potatoes turn a bit crispy and brown.
