Sliced Baked Potatoes with Herbs and Cheese

This gorgeously comforting potato dish has it all – butter, crispy edges, fresh herbs, and gooey cheese. You can also prepare these with potato skins-on and, though Kelly understandably prefers to use fresh herbs with this dish, she is not averse to using dried Italian seasoning. This herby, cheesy delight can serve just as well as a side dish, or on its own with a salad or similar.
Ingredients:
  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 1/4 cup melted butter (plan on 1 Tbs per potato)
  • 1 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 2-3 Tbs chopped fresh herbs (or 2-3 tsp dried):
  • try basil, thyme, oregano, chives, or Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan (other cheeses would be good as well)

Mini Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf Cupcakes

You know me; I love minifying things. Especially when there are 35 pounds of melted cheese inside a minified thing. The cheese doesn’t have to be mini, but everything else does!

This works. Don’t ask me how, but it does.

Anyway, today I’ve minified some meatloaf. Chicken Parmesan meatloaf, to be exact. Stuffed with mozzarella cheese. 35 pounds of it.
Ingredients

  • 1 cup panko
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pound ground chicken breast (or dark meat)
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced white onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 6 fresh basil leaves, torn
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper
  • 16 small mozzarella cubes, cut from a block
  • 2 cups Muir Glen marinara sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the panko, half of the Parmesan cheese, and the olive oil. Using your fingers, combine the mixture until it’s evenly coated. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, lightly beat the egg. Then add the chicken, red bell pepper, onion, garlic, oregano, the remaining Parmesan, basil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well with your hands.
  4. Lightly coat a mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Place a couple of tablespoons of the chicken mixture in each well. Nestle a cube of mozzarella in the center of the mixture. Pat the chicken over the cheese to completely cover it.
  5. Sprinkle the panko/Parmesan mixture on top of each chicken mound, lightly pressing it into the meat.
  6. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the panko is golden brown and the chicken is cooked through. If needed, you may broil the panko to further brown it.
  7. Let rest 5 minutes. Then using a knife, lightly loosen each cupcake from the muffin tin.
  8. In the meantime, warm the marinara sauce in a small saucepan.
  9. Serve meatloaf cupcakes with warmed marinara.

Parmesan Chicken Manicotti

One of things that sure puts me in a better mood is yummy food. And this one is definitely yummy. I love manicotti and I usually make them with spinach and ricotta cheese. But this time, I did something different… one because I didn’t have any frozen spinach… so I thought, how should I use manicotti without any frozen spinach. And a thought came to me “let’s stuff them with some shredded chicken, Parmesane cheese and ricotta together!
Ingredients:

  • 7 pieces Manicotti, cooked according to instructions
  • 1 cup part skim Ricotta cheese
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • salt and black pepper
  • 1 can Italian style crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
  • 6-8 basil leaves
