Ya’ll, these are the best potatoes I have ever made. I have been craving potatoes lately, but with the limited ingredients in the Chinese grocery stores, all of the goat cheese and gruyere laden recipes were a no go. I have been meaning to go get goat cheese and sweet potatoes from Avocado lady, but it has been raining for two days, with days two more days to go, and I hate going out in the rain. SO, I went to the Tesco downstairs and picked up some onions and white cheddar cheese and these twice baked potatoes were born.
They are super cheesy and rich from the caramelized onions. It was a perfect rainy day dinner. I have been feeling a little down lately, my boyfriend recently left China and cooking for one just isn’t as fun (sad face). So to counter my sadness I made an insane amount of potatoes and plan on eating them for lunch every day.
- 4 small russet potatoes
- 2 T of greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup of white shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 tsp rosemary
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 1 small onion
- 1 t butter
- olive oil
- salt & pepper to taste
- Preheat the oven to 400F, wash and dry potatoes and poke holes in them with forks
- Bake for about 40 minutes or until soft
- While the potatoes are baking, slice the onion very thin and caramelize in about 1 T of olive oil and small pat of butter (this will take around 30 minutes)
- Take the potatoes out of the oven, leave the oven on, cut the potatoes in half and let cool for a few minutes
- Scoop the potato into a small bowl, leaving a little in the skin to help it hold shape,
- Mix in the caramelized onions, shredded cheese, greek yogurt, rosemary, thyme, and salt & pepper to taste
- Place skins in a baking dish and fill with the potato mixture
- Place back in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes
- Top with some more shredded cheese, sea salt, and an olive oil drizzle
- Return for oven for about 5 more minute until the top is starting to brown
- Pig out
Make these potatoes and let me know what you think, even though you won’t be able to because you’ll be too busy stuffing your face.
