Dutch Oven – Herb Stuffed Potatoes

07.26.2010


Let’s defy convention. Throw normalcy out the window. Shatter our paradigms. You with me still? Ok, so besides the loaded baked potato, does anyone think of the potato as a main dish? Likely not. That’s why the phrases “steak and potatoes” and “meat and potatoes” made it into our lexicons. Well, this isn’t small potatoes! (Sorry, couldn’t help myself!) I decided to make a dish with no big hunk o’ meat, and used potatoes as the main dish. In fact, we didn’t have any side dishes.

I was trying to figure out how to spruce up a potato, and I thought it would be cool to stuff one with herbs, but I didn’t know exactly how to do that to a raw potato. This is what I came up with: cut a cross deep into each potato, gently prying open the cut and stuff with herbs. Worked okay, but next time, I’d cut them in half, take out some flesh with a melon baller, and stuff them, then close them back with toothpicks or aluminum foil.
