Pizza Potato

Craving both pizza AND potatoes? Here’s the perfect solution!

– 1 russet potato
– Pizza or marinara sauce
– Daiya mozzarella cheese
– Red pepper
– Olive oil
– Salt
– Pepper
– Oregano

– Preheat oven to 400 degrees
– Wash the potato and remove blemishes, then stab it all over with a fork
– Coat the potato with olive oil and generously sprinkle on the salt, pepper, and oregano
– Bake the potato on the rack for 45 minutes
– Remove the potato, but don’t turn off the oven. Stab the potato across the middle with a fork, and then pop it open by squishing the sides together

– Return the potato to the oven and bake for 10 more minutes

Enjoy your potato pizza!

Awhile ago I decided to surprise my husband with a special meal. This is what I made him. Sauteed kale, collard greens, red chard, and spinach with mushrooms, peppers, and onions. And herb roasted potato wedgies. And, a glass of bubbly pink kosher wine.

All that was missing was desert 😉

Hasselhoff Potatoes aka Sea Bugs

I varied the recipe slightly from traditional hasselback potatoes (added rosemary, thyme and olive oil and left off the parmesan), so I’m calling these Hasselhoff potatoes instead. They look a bit like bugs, don’t they? I can imagine them crawling around on the ocean floor, possibly hanging out with this guy.

Ingredients (to serve 1-4 depending on how hungry you are)
4 russet potatoes
2 tbsp Olive oil
2 tbsp Earth balance, melted

– Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
– Wash potatoes and remove blemishes/eyes
– Using a sharp knife, cut the potato into thin sections a few mm thick. Don’t cut all the way down so they’re severed from the potato – stop a few mm before you get to the bottom.
– Rub the potatoes with olive oil
– Melt the Earth Balance and pour over the potatoes
– Sprinkle with salt/pepper/rosemary/thyme (however much to suit your tastes)
– Place potatoes on a cookie sheet on the middle rack of the oven and bake for one hour

Optional: Additional Earth Balance can be poured on/more spices added at around 40 min in, after the sections have split apart, if you want to be sure each slice gets some one it. (That’s what I did)

Remove from the oven and enjoy!
