Roasted New Potatoes with Green Onions and Brie Cheese

If people were to ask me, what is my favorite food, I would probably say that it is cheese and strong coffee ice-cream. My favorite cheese is goat cheese, and my “Peche Mignon” are those little crotins de Chavignol, or small goat cheeses that are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. I love them so much that when I drive to Greenville, I usually will stop at the Whole Food store to buy one just to meet my cravings. Luckily goat cheese is one of the few cheese I can eat without having terrible cramps ( being lactose intolerant). So you guess it, coffee ice-cream is now just a dream. I do not even attempt to try. It is not worth the pain….

What is so funny, is that even though I cannot eat a lot of cheese, I always buy some randomly just because they are an easy addition to any dish, and can add so much flavor!!! This Monday evening, there was so much that needed to be done that I did not have time to spend time in the kitchen so I decided to cook my husband the following dinner. Roasted Potatoes, with steamed green beans and German meatloaf or Fleich Kasse that I bought from the Deli Korner. Fast, probably not that healthy, but still better than Fast food…

For the potatoes, you will need the following ingredients for 4: 1 bag of the new potatoes, 1/2 brie cheese from Costco, 3 green onions chopped thinly, salt and pepper.

Wash the potatoes thoroughly by brushing them with a small brush. Place them in the large round mold, and add 1/2 tsp of water with a dash of salt. Cover the round mold with the octogonal silpat and cook in the microwave for 6 minutes. When the potatoes are cooked, cut them in half, and place them back into the round mold. Add the chopped green onions, the diced cheese and sprinkle 1/8 tsp of salt, 1/16 tsp of pepper and mix well. Cook in the oven at 375 for 15 minutes. Et voila!!!

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
