  • 20 small purple potatoes scrubbed
  • 4 ounces of cheddar cheese sliced into small squares

For Topping:

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • ¼ teaspoon Cajun or blackened seasoning {more if you want more of a "kick"}
  • ¼ cup  cheddar cheese shredded
  • salt to taste


  • In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Assembling Potatoes:

  • Fill a medium pot with water and a tablespoon of salt. Place scrubbed potatoes in water. Bring to a boil and cook for 15-18 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain and set aside to cool.
  • Slice each potato in half.* Season with salt. While warm, top with a small square of cheddar cheese.
  • Finish with a small dollop of yogurt mixture.


*You may need to cut a tiny sliver off the bottoms of potatoes for them to stand without rolling.
