Arla® Dofino® Jalapeño Havarti gives these cheesy potatoes a playful flavor. They are a perfect appetizer recipe for game day or any time you have a crowd.

  • 24 small new potatoes
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1½ cup hot mashed potatoes
  • 1½ cup shredded Arla Dofino® Havarti with Jalapeño Chunk
  • 6 slices chopped cooked bacon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped jalapeños
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

Instructions

Trim ¼ inch off the top of the potatoes and just enough off the bottoms in order to stand them up. Scoop out the centers and place on a baking sheet. Pour water into the pan, cover with foil and bake in a preheated 400°F oven until soft, about 15 minutes. Set aside. Combine the mashed potatoes with 1 cup of the cheese, bacon, jalapeño and cilantro. Spoon the mixture into the center of the potatoes. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and return to oven. Bake until cheese melts and potatoes are thoroughly heated, about 10 minutes. Tips: Plan ahead! Prepare both the potatoes and the filling in advance. On game day, simply assemble the potatoes and heat thoroughly just before serving.
