Cheesy Potato Nests

Find me a kid who can resist these tasty parcels! Grate the Yukon Golds with their skins on for flavour and nutrition.


  • 2 medium organic Yukon Gold potatoes

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar, Monterey jack or Gruyère

  • 3 green onions, minced

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  • Fill a large bowl halfway with water. Grate scrubbed potatoes, placing grated pieces into the water as you work. In a large sieve, drain potatoes, pressing to release as much water as possible. Lay out a clean tea towel; spread potatoes in a single layer, then roll up and squeeze out extra moisture.

  • In a large bowl, combine potatoes, cheese, green onions, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix.

  • On a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet, spoon out one-sixth of the mixture to create a nest. Repeat 5 times.

  • Bake on the middle rack for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown.
