Potato Bites with Ricotta & Corn Relish & a GIVEAWAY!

Potato Bites with Ricotta & Corn Relish

Tapas, appetizers, hors d’oeuvres, antipasto, canapés, Vorspeisen, mezze, aperitivos. Whatever you call them, they are delicious, fun and make any party way better. My absolute favorite things to make are little bites of food. M and I have many friends with different likes, dietary restrictions and food philosophies so the best way to have them all over and feed everyone is to present a spread of finger foods. Plus, when people have to get up and move around to get their food and drinks, it encourages more mingling which takes the pressure off me to constantly entertain.

Now what to make with the potatoes? This week I used Miss Potato’s versatility and turned her into a canapé. The potato slices are grilled, giving them a crisp crust on which to nestle the creamy herbed ricotta cheese. Topping it all off is a sweet and tart corn relish that brightens up these miniature flavor packs. I love the way the corn pops in my mouth like little juicy fireworks exploding and melting into the smooth ricotta. Sounds like it’s time to organize a party.
