Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 pounds Little Potato Company Creamer potatoes I used Dynamic Duo
  • 5 garlic cloves peeled
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 ounces prosciutto chopped
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley + garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • yogurt for garnish if desired

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat a mini muffin pan (24 cups) with cooking spray.
  • Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Cut the potatoes in half. Add the potatoes and garlic cloves to the boiling water. Cook until the potatoes are tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Scoop out and reserve ¼ cup of the cooking water. Drain the potatoes and garlic into a colander. Transfer to a large bowl.
  • Mash the potatoes and garlic cloves with the olive oil, pepper and salt until combined. They won’t be completely smooth because of the potato skins. If the potatoes are a little dry, mash in some of the reserved cooking water.
  • Stir the prosciutto, green onions, Parmesan cheese and parsley into the mashed potatoes. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper, if necessary.
  • Using a spoon, place 1 ½ tablespoons of the mashed potato mixture into each muffin tin. Lightly press down the mixture.
  • Bake until the potato bites are browned around the edges and starting to brown on top, 25 to 30 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes. Using a small metal spatula, remove the potato bites from the muffin tin and transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with yogurt and parsley, if desired. Serve.
