Realistic Cooking Ideas

for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!

My Irish Potato Bites are paired with my Kicked Up Turkey Reuben Sandwich. This is a delicious recipe that can be used as an appetizer or as one of your side-dishes to a main meal. For St. Patrick’s Day I like to use Kerrygold’s Dubliner Cheese with Irish Stout imported from Ireland! This cheese is a sweet, nutty, rich Dubliner cheese, swirled with the malty, caramel, bitter flavor of Irish Stout. Treat yourself to this wonderful cheese!!

Ingredients
12 small Red or Salt Potatoes (about 2 pounds)
3/4 cup grated Cheddar, divided
2 slices Crumbled Turkey Bacon
1/4 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
1 tablespoon Butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
1/4 teaspoon Ground White Pepper
3 Green Onions, thinly sliced

Topping
1/3 cup Cheddar cheese
Green onions or chives

Tips
I like to place my finished potatoes bites in a muffin pan for baking. This is a versatile recipe as you can add or substitute other ingredients such as ham. If you do not have green onions, you could substitute a sweet onion. You can bake your potatoes in a 400-degree oven for about 35 to 40 minutes. I bake them in the microwave to save time.

Preparation
Wash, dry, and pierce the potatoes. Place on a microwave safe dish lined with paper towels and bake in the microwave until cooked. Cool briefly and then halve potatoes. Using a teaspoon, scoop out the middle of each potato half, leaving a 1/4-inch border around the edges and bottom.

Transfer potato flesh to a large bowl and mash roughly with a spoon or fork. Slowly add all ingredients, stirring well before adding more ingredients. Scoop some of the potato mixture into each potato half. Scatter toppings over the tops. Bake in a 400-degree until golden brown and hot throughout, about 15 minutes.
