I admit I didn't expect much from this recipe but it actually turned out really good. It was an entry by Erin Patil in the Queens of the Holidays cookbook.
It's not a quick recipe as you have to bake the potatoes, let them cool, and then bake them again. They aren't hard to make though so definitely give them a try. Very tasty little morsels. This makes twelve little stuffed potatoes. They're pretty rich. and not exactly diet food. I dare you to not want to eat them all.
GRUYERE-STUFFED NEW POTATOES
6 medium new potatoes, washed
2 green onions, minced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 pound Gruyere cheese, grated
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon ground coriander
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Coat potatoes with olive oil and bake for 45 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from oven and let cool.
When cool enough to handle, slice in half and carefully remove the pulp, taking care not to tear the skin. Set skins aside and place pulp in a bowl.
Cook green onions in butter over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add to the potato pulp. Add cheese, sour cream, coriander, salt and pepper; mix well. Taste and adjust seasonings. Stuff mixture back into the potato skins and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Serve potatoes hot.
