Notes

Makes 20 Mini Potatoes
Tips:
  • If potatoes aren't level, slice a very small amount off the bottom of each potato.
  • If you're worried about slicing through the entire potatoes, place two wooden spoons along the top and bottom of each potato to use as a stopper.
  • We highly recommend buying a block of cheese and shredding it yourself instead of buying pre-shredded cheese. Freshly shredded cheese does not have anti-caking agents, so it will melt better and more evenly. It will also melt right into each sliced nook to maximize cheesy goodness.
