These easy baked potato pizzas are a delicious fun treat that your whole family will love.
Baked potatoes! Every kid loves them, and they are so easy to cook.
Red potatoes and German butterball potatoes to be exact. We received three big bags of mini potatoes in our farm box today. Now we love potatoes, but three big bags after receiving a big bag last week, has me scrambling to figure out what to do with all of these.
My son loves potatoes and he is my “easy” to feed child. He will try anything once. My daughter, on the other hand, is picky. She loves potatoes, but only fried or plain with a little sour cream. Bland foods are her favorite. Pizza sauce is the only form of tomato to ever cross her lips. If you have a child like this, you know what I mean.
I am going to try to stretch her palate a little and see if a “cheesy pizza potato” would change her mind.
The idea came to me after seeing a million pictures on Pinterest of a big potato sliced thinly partway, filled with cheese, and baked. Could I make a pizza out of this concept? Would it even work with mini potatoes? I have made a couple delicious potato recipes recently like this Cheesy Bacon Ricotta Scalloped Potato Casserole and these Jambalaya Stuffed Baked Potatoes.
I set out to find out. First, I made thin slices in the little potatoes:
Next, use a teaspoon to drizzle in the marinara sauce.
Next, slice organic mozzarella sticks on a diagonal so they would be just a little longer. I then inserted the cheese into each cut on the potato.
I sprinkled parmesan cheese on top and put these into my convection toaster oven at 375 degrees and baked for 20 minutes.
And the verdict….my daughter had seconds on this healthy snack! Success!!!
