Idaho Potato Quick and Easy Superbowl Recipes

Written by Diana - February 2, 2010 0 Comments

I’m trying to load all you hard working folks up with some quick and easy recipes that have funneled my way.  Sometimes when there’s a big gathering of people who want to eat while sitting in front of the tube, you want something that’s not going to take all day to prepare, and maybe food that can be eaten with your fingers.  Here are some from the Idaho Potato Commission.

  1. Preheat the oven to 425º. Coat the cups of 3 mini-muffin pans (36 cups) with cooking spray.
  2. In a saucepan, in water to cover, over high heat, cook the potatoes about 15 minutes, or until fork-tender, but not mushy. Drain the potatoes, then mash or put them through a ricer. Stir in the salt and egg; set aside. In a small bowl, using a fork, combine the pesto and softened cream cheese until blended.
  3. Spoon a rounded tablespoon of potato mixture into each muffin cup, pressing the spoon against the bottom and sides of the cup to make a small impression in the middle. Spoon 1 teaspoon of pesto mixture into the impression of each cup.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and top each cup with a small amount of chopped tomatoes and one olive slice for garnish. Return to the oven for 3 minutes more. Serve hot or warm.
