Heaven-Topped Potato Halves
Now, I generally try to stick to relatively healthy recipes, but this one, which is incredibly indulgent, just needed to be shared. I do not recommend eating this every day, or even often, but on those really bad days, or just when the cold weather is getting to you, these potatoes can brighten your night. The ultimate in comfort food, I like to save these for desperate times. And once you taste them, you’ll know why I chose the phrase “heaven-topped”.
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup grated asiago cheese (you could substitute a number of delicious cheese here, mozzarella, cheddar, even gruyere)
1/2 stick melted butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place potatoes, round side down, in a baking pan of appropriate size, so the potatoes are relatively close together or touching. I used a 9 x 9 glass dish. Bake potatoes alone for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix together the other ingredients, saving the butter for last. Add salt and pepper to taste, if you wish. Spoon this mixture on top of potatoes and put them into the oven for another 25 to 30 minutes, or until top is brown and bubbly. Let cool slightly, serve and enjoy!
