Green Potato Pies..

on March 18, 2009

Obviously not just for St. Patrick’s Day in our house! Last night was the first time I made and I will be making the again as they were a huge hit.

Here’s what you need:

4 baking potatoes (I only made 3)
1 tablespoon margarine (I did to taste- ended up being about 1 1/2 tbl)
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped spinach (I used defrosted frozen)
grated cheese to taste (I used mozzarella to taste)
I also added salt to taste

Here’s what you do:

Bake the potatoes

When cool, cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the insides into a mixing bowl. Reserve the potato skins.

Mash the potatoes, margarine and milk.

Stir in spinach and add cheese to taste.

Spoon the mixture back into the potato skins, place the potatoes on a baking sheet and bake at 350F for 10 minutes.


If you want to have your child help you in the kitchen, they can help mash the potatoes, milk and margarine and then stir in spinach and cheese.


I wasn’t sure how they would go over with Stephen or Emily. And I am not a big spinach person. But all 3 of us LOVED the recipe so I know I will be making them again.

We might not have had the traditional St Pat’s dinner but we did honor the Irish with potatoes. And the corned beef? Yummy! I had made Emily something else to eat because she is so big on textures and I didn’t think she would like it. She proved me wrong! She thought it was pretty good. Maybe she is expanding her palate a little bit!
