Potato Bites with Cheddar Cheese and Thyme

Potato Bits with Cheddar Cheese and Theme

This is by no means a simple appetizer to make. However, if you would like to take a little time to impress your special guests, this is the one to wow them. I learned this recipe from Martha Stewart recipe collection for hors d'oeuvres.

First, you need to have two mini-muffin pans and preheat the oven to 400F degree.

1) Slice potato into paper thin slices. Use a small cookie cutter to shape the slides so that they fit perfectly in the mini-muffin pan. This is when having a food processor becomes handy.
2) Spray the mini-muffin pan with a light layer of olive oil spray. I used a type of olive oil with basil flavor, and it helped.
3) Put a tiny bit of thyme at the bottom of the pan. This is how you would create a little flower on each potato bite.
4) Now, you start the batch process to put a potato slice in each mini-muffin holder. Then add a bit of sharp cheddar cheese; you need to rotate the process and put about 15 layers of the potato slides and cheese in the muffin holder
5) Spray some olive oil on the last piece of the potato
6) Put another bit of thyme on top
7) Cover potatoes with a piece of parchment paper, and place another sheet pan on top. Weight the top baking pan with something heavy like an iron pan.
8) Bake for about 12 - 15 min, until potatoes are crisp and golden brown all over, about 12 minutes. Remove from oven, and serve.
9)Take the bites out; sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper and serve.
