Feta and Parmesan Potatoes

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. very small red potatoes cut in half
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 oz. crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 oz. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian herb blend
  • 1 teaspoon minced parsley
1. Season potatoes with salt and pepper and rub them with olive oil. Place on a baking sheet.


2. Cook potatoes in a 350 degrees oven until browned and tender (about 30 minutes). Stir the potatoes periodically as they cook to be sure they cook evenly.

3. When the potatoes are done place in a bowl. Toss potatoes with cheeses and Italian herbs, parsley and any remaining oil. Taste for seasoning and serve immediately.

Blue Cheese Baked Onions

Ingredients:

  • 4 10-12 oz. onions (Spanish onions work great, although you can also certainly use sweeter varieties)
  • 2 oz. fat-free cream cheese, softened
  • 2 oz. full-flavored blue cheese, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons minced green onion
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons water
  • 4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
1. Cut 1/2 inch of the stem end off of the onion and discard. (The stem end is the pointy end of the onion.) Do not peel the onion. Wrap each onion individually in aluminum foil so that foil closes on cut end of the onion. Place the onions on a baking sheet, cut surface up, and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 2 hours or until the onions are very soft.


2. Meanwhile, combine cream cheese, blue cheese, pepper, green onion, and water. Reserve.

3. Remove onions from oven and unwrap just to expose the cut surface of the onions. Using a paring knife, cut down into the onion slightly without cutting through the skin. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar into the top of the onion. Top the cut surface of the onion with the cream cheese/blue cheese mixture. You can push some of this mixture into the center of the onion. Top with panko bread crumbs.

4. Return the onions, foil tops open, to the oven and bake for 15 more minutes. Remove and cool slightly before serving.
