  • 700 grams (1.5 pounds) of small yellow potatoes
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • Spring onion, chopped
  • 115 grams (4 ounces) of mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp of butter
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil or any cooking oil you prefer
  • ¼ tsp of crushed red pepper
  • ¼ tsp of black pepper
  • ½ tsp of sweet paprika
  • ½ tsp of salt


Step 1

Wash and peel the potatoes well, then place them inside a medium or large pot, and fill the pot with water just enough to totally submerge the potatoes. Sprinkle it with 1 teaspoon of salt and let it cook for about 12 to 15 minutes until tender. While waiting for the potatoes to cook, chop your spring onions, then grate 4 ounces of mozzarella cheese, and mince 2 cloves of garlic, set them all aside.

Step 2

Once the potatoes are done cooking, drain them off from water, and set them aside as well. Prepare a pan and place it on a stove over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of butter and let it melt before adding in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add in the garlic, then season it with crushed red pepper, black pepper, and sweet paprika. Give them a good stir until incorporated, then sprinkle some salt, and add in the drained baby potatoes. Fry it over medium heat for about 1 to 2 minutes, then add in chopped spring onion, and sprinkle the grated mozzarella cheese. Cover it and cook over low heat for about 2 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Serve and enjoy!
