Small Bite ~ Potato

The small bite for this week is 'Potato'
I struggled for a bit, until my sister reminded me of something Martha Stewart had done... mini twice baked potatoes on a bed of sea salt. Perfect!
I took this idea and made it work with my favorite gorgonzola mashed potatoes.Gorgonzola Finger Potatoes
6 small red potatoes
3 Tbs gorgonzola
1-2 Tbs cream
olive oil
1/2 cup rock salt
freshly ground pepper
Wash small red potatoes and rub with olive oil. Bake at 350° for 20-30 minutes until soft in the center. Cool and slice in half lengthwise. Gently scoop out the potato, being careful to leave enough around the edges to keep the potato shell stable. In a small bowl combine potato and gorgonzola, stir briskly; add cream as needed to make a smooth consistency. Using a ziploc bag, 'pipe' back into potato shells. To plate, cover a plate with rock salt and settle potatoes into the salt. Top with a little freshly ground black pepper.Now, let's see what small bites we get from the other 'nibblers'. Leave your link on Mr Mcklinky. Y'all enjoy!
Next week's secret ingredient is my choice ~~~Brie~~~

For some reason for the past few months potatoes have been my favorite thing to eat. Now I see this on your blog and think, "omg, I have to try this!!" Thanks for helping me pursue my carb craze. I took a pledge to myself yesterday that I would attempt to go completely carbless until Christmas Day. Oh well, intentions....
