Curry-Cheese Potato Bites Recipe

This recipe is a lot of fun to make, plus I get a kick out of telling people the ingredients—green curry paste and coconut milk. It sounds exotic, but the potatoes are actually really easy to make and have a mild curry taste.—Anna Ginsberg, Austin, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 50 min. Bake: 10 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds small red potatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup spreadable garden vegetable cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon green curry paste
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with oil, salt and pepper. Transfer to a greased baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 25-30 minutes or until tender.
  • 2. When cool enough to handle, cut a thin slice off the bottom of each potato, if necessary, to sit flat. Cut a thin slice off the top of each potato and discard. Scoop out potato pulp, leaving thin shells.
  • 3. In a small bowl, mash the pulp with cream cheese, 1/4 cup Swiss cheese, milk and curry paste. Spoon into potato shells. Sprinkle with bacon and remaining Swiss cheese. Return to baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until heated through. Yield: about 2 dozen.
