Sinful Spuds

The combination of feta, olives and pine nuts nestled in potato halves is divine. For best results, choose potatoes of roughly the same size and shape.

Ingredients: 

Ingredients: 

Ingredient Line: 
24 small new potatoes
Ingredient Line: 
¾ cup feta cheese
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup pine nuts, toasted
Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup pitted chopped green olives
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. dried currants
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. finely grated lemon peel
Ingredient Line: 
½ tsp. dried oregano
Ingredient Line: 
½ tsp. freshly ground pepper
Ingredient Line: 
48 leaves fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions: 

  1. Cut thin slice off top and bottom of each potato. Cut each potato crosswise in half. In large saucepan, combine potatoes with salted cold water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until potatoes are tender when pierced with fork, 10 to 15 minutes. Be careful not to overcook. Drain and set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in small bowl, crumble feta with fork. Add pine nuts, olives, oil, currants, lemon peel, oregano and pepper. Mix well.
  3. To assemble, with spoon or melon baller, scoop out center from each potato half. Fill each with heaping teaspoon feta mixture. Garnish with parsley.

Do ahead: The feta mixture can be made up to 2 days ahead and refrigerated, but don't add pine nuts until the last minute. Bring the mixture to room temperature before stuffing potatoes. The potatoes can be stuffed up to 4 hours in advance.
