Garlic-Herb Potato Nests

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling


2 dozen

These elegant-looking little appetizers are quite simple to prepare, says Donna Cline of Pensacola, Florida. “The crunchy nests filled with herb cheese ’eggs’ are a real eye-catcher, too.”


  • 2 cups grated peeled potatoes, drained and squeezed dry
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup garlic-herb spreadable cheese
  • Fresh dill sprigs


  1. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, egg white, salt and pepper. Place 1 tablespoonful in each of 24 greased miniature muffin cups, lining the bottom and sides of cups.
  2. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 2 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. Shape 1/2 teaspoonfuls of cheese into ovals; place in potato nests. Garnish with dill. Serve at room temperature.
