Goat Cheesy Purple Potatoes


First of all…aren’t purple potatoes pretty? I remember the first time I cut into one I was anticipating it to be white inside with only purple skin, but lo and behold…I found deep rich purple color all the way through. Beautiful! To me, this just says N-U-T-R-I-E-N-T RICH!

SONY DSCWe’ve harvested the last of our purple potatoes, and now have an abundance of them stored away for later…hmmm the recipe ideas start a brewing. 😉

I have to give credit of this recipe to Grey because he did mention how good goat cheese would be paired with these earthy potatoes.

Goat cheese is something that is fairly new to me, it’s only within the last year or so that I’ve tried it and used it in a lot of our cooking. We’ve even been adding it to our favorite pizza that originally only had traditional mozzarella and Parmesan.  


SONY DSCThey can be made anyway but we served them scalloped. I like this recipe because it is simple enough to make for your family on a weeknight and fancy enough to make for guests on the weekend. Hope you enjoy!
