Stuffed Mini Red Potatoes, Lite Recipe

“This is a nice side dish for a heavy entree, when you want some starch, but a small amount that is still an eye-catcher. Choose red potatoes that are about the size of small lemons or large limes. You can find recipes for roasting garlic on this site. Regarding the cheese, I use an Italian 5 cheese blend that I get in the Deli of the supermarket. I couldn't remember all of them, so just look for that.”

  1. Bake potatoes at 400°F for 30-40 minutes till done.
