Salt-Baked Potatoes with Goat Cheese
-3 cups salt
-1 bag small red potatoes
-2 Tbsp. olive oil
-3 cloves garlic, or a few shakes of garlic powder
-10 oz goat cheese, softened
-2 Tsp. chopped fresh thyme
-Cracked black pepper, to taste
Spread out a layer of salt on a baking sheet. Cut the potatoes in half, coat in olive oil, lay them with the skin side down on the baking sheet, and bake for 35-40 minutes at 400 degrees.
Meanwhile, mix together the goat cheese, thyme, garlic powder, and black pepper. When the potatoes are done, use a melon baller to scoop out the inside of each mini potato. Mix some of the potato with the cheese mixture. (We used all of it, if we did it again I think we would use a little less to make them cheesier).
Broil for 1-2 minutes, until the tops are a little brown.
