Cheesy Ramekin Potatoes hot from the oven
One of my college graduation gifts was a gift certificate to Sur La Table. It was no trouble to spend the whole thing in one trip, and I returned home with quite a few goodies. I couldn't wait to get cooking with my new supplies, so for dinner last night I decided to bake a potato dish in my new ramekins. Ingredients? Cheese and potatoes. I originally wanted to include roasted red peppers, but I didn't remember until I was done preparing them. Plus I figured you really can't go wrong with cheese and potatoes. The cheese was ooey, gooey and crispy all at the same time, while the potatoes were golden soft. The ramekins cooked them perfectly and looked nice served directly on the plate.
Cheddar cheese, grated
Parmesan cheese, grated

Spray each ramekin with cooking spray for easy eating and clean up
Put the thinnest slice of butter you can cut at the bottom of each ramekin

Add a layer of parmesan, then another potato, then cheddar, etc.
