Gorgonzola potatoes

This is one of my favorite ways to make potatoes. It is a side dish that can go with almost anything. Our son was home from college for a quick visit and we had it just the other night with gorgeous steaks cooked in a skillet.

Gorgonzola Potatoes
3-4 large potatoes, chunked
salt and black pepper
ground nutmeg
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 cup half and half
3/4 cup gorgonzola crumbled (3oz)
2 tablespoons parmesean cheese
Preheat the oven 400°
In 8 or 9 inch square baking dish arrange half the potatoes; season with salt and pepper and then sprinkle with nutmeg. Top with onion and continue laying the rest of the potatoes on top. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Add cream and half the cheese and cover with foil.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Top with cheese and bake uncovered 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

I have joined in the 'Scale Back Alabama' at work, so this might have been the last yummy potatoes I have for a while. At least they were worth the calories!

Time to get serious about promise #9 ~Eat less-Move more.

How are y'all doing with your goals?

Those look AMAZING! But, alas, I also began Scale Back Alabama today. No potatoes for me. *Sigh*

Please feel free to post some recipes for what you are eating now! :)

They look delish,but potatoes are a no no for me right now. I'll try them later, but when??? BTW, I would not have thought to add nutmeg. Interesting.

I hope you'll be sharing some low cal, low carb recipes while you participate in Scale Back Alabama.

That's a great dish to try. But I think I need to start a group called Scaled Back Virginia! LOL!

Is this the recipe Palmabella whipped up in Italy? It looks delicious but not on my post Christmas pig diet! :-(

Barb said...

Looks so yummy ..........Barb

Doodles~ I love almost anything with gorgonzola too. Therefore the need for a challenge. :-)
Jerry~ You'll see it is really close to Palma's... but not quite. Maybe I'll whip this one up in Montisi this year.

No, it wasn't mean. I am okay with just licking the computer screen for now. :)
