Andouille & Ramp Stuffed Idaho® Fingerling Potatoes



INGREDIENTS


Idaho® Fingerlings, such as Purple Peruvian or Ruby Crescent
2 lbs

andouille sausage, finely diced
4 oz

ramps, or green onions, finely diced
4

garlic cloves, minced
2

creamy brie spread
1/2 cup

extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp

kosher salt & fresh-cracked black pepper
to taste

Sweet/Hot Red Pepper Sauce, recipe follows
1/4 cup

fresh chives
to garnish


DIRECTIONS


Boil potatoes until tender, but not too soft, about 10 minutes.

Set aside until they can be handled.

Trim potato bottoms so they can sit upright, and then trim off enough of the top to allow you to scoop out most of the flesh. Reserve flesh.

In a small sauté pan, warm the oil over medium high heat.

Add the sausage, ramps, and garlic. Cook until vegetables begin to wilt and sausage is giving off some fat.

Add the reserved potato flesh and warm through.

Remove from heat and place in small bowl.

Add cheese and using a fork or the back of a spoon, lightly smash the ingredients together.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Put filling in piping bag and stuff potatoes allowing the filling to overflow out of the top.

Heat in a 425°F oven for 7-8 minutes.
