hot potato

January 25, 2010

I’ve been eating a lot of pretzels with slices of locally made cheddar cheese (prairie breeze, from Milton) and Patak’s Hot Lime Relish. Tonight I was still craving the taste, but wanted something a little more dinner like, so I switched the pretzel out for a potato.

And added some green onion, sliced jalapeño, and cilantro. And of course a dollop of butter. It was yummy, and definitely a welcome change from the pretzels.

Wash and prick potato (russets are good), stick it into a 400 degree oven, and let bake until tender. (Can’t remember how long..) While the potato is baking, chop some green onions (about 1 per potato), a little bunch of cilantro, and the tip of a jalapeño, and mix them up a little on the cutting board.  Add a good amount of butter to the potato first, so that it melts, and then add the chopped green mixture and cheese. On top of all that add a big spoon of lime pickle (to taste!). This might taste good with yogurt as well (instead of the more traditional sour cream).
