A delicious appetizer filled with fresh herbs!


  • 1 small bag baby potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chopped rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon chopped thyme
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese
  • Salt


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.  Place potatoes on a large baking sheet and toss with 1 teaspoon olive oil.  Bake potatoes until fork tender, about 30 minutes.
  2. Let potatoes cool and then cut them in half.  Use a small spoon, or teaspoon, to scoop out the middle of the potatoes and place into a medium sized bowl.
  3. In a small pot, add the butter, garlic, herbs and a pinch of salt.  Cook over medium heat until butter is melted and garlic is starting to brown.
  4. Add the garlic herb butter to the potatoes and mash until smooth.  Add about a teaspoon of the potato mixture back to eat potato skin and sprinkle the top of each with about 1 teaspoon cheese.
  5. Place potatoes back into the oven and bake until cheese is melted, 7-10 minutes.  Best when served immediately and sprinkled with fresh herbs.
