one potato, two potato…

Mini Baked Potatoes

Mini Baked Potatoes

Ever since I was allowed to use an oven (probably in middle school), one of my favorite things to make when I wanted to eat something filling, yet easy, was a baked potato. Especially when I was broke in college, I ate my fair share of baked potatoes slathered with butter and a ton of cheese. No matter when you make it, it's just so satisfying.

Combining the comfort of a baked potato with some unexpected ingredients, we made these mini baked potatoes which are perfect for making when people come over…or for a late night snack for yourself…

Mini Baked Potatoes

Here's how:

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Place small yellow dutch potatoes in a baking dish or baking sheet.

3. Bake covered for 30 minutes, and then uncover and bake or another 10 minutes until golden brown and give in when squeezed.

4. Top butter, salt, and extra toppings of your choice!

Here are some combinations we love…

1. Peas, proscuttio, basil, and a dash of pepper is like an artisanal sandwich in miniature potato form.

2. Edamame, pomegranate seeds, green onions, mozzarella cheese, and a sprinkle of spicy korean chili seasoning tastes savory with an asian twist.

3. Peaches, walnuts, ricotta cheese, and a drizzle of honey is creamy and a tad sweet almost like a sweet potato.

Are there any other baked potato toppings you make and love?

Heh heh! What an amazing call—You’re on an extraordinary roll, thanks for the inspiration, lady-friend!

  5. I used to love baked potatoes as a kid, but as an adult I have a hard time finding the appeal of them! I just imagine a tasteless lump of potato doused in sour cream and chives of cheese and bacon…I guess my question is how to get the baked potato nice and fluffy so that’ it’s not just a vehicle for toppings.

  6. Hey Kristy!
    I find that if you cover the potatoes when baking them, it keeps them moist and fluffier! Also, butter or olive before adding other ingredients!

  7. I’ve recently become obsessed with baked potatoes! I was so excited to see this post! I have one for lunch at least once a week. I like adding avocado, salsa, and shredded cheese for a Mexican taste.
