MiniLemon-Thyme Potato Bites

I know you’re all looking for last minute finger foods and easy vegetarian recipes to serve tomorrow night for Christmas Eve, aren’t you?

Nothing too complicated.


Nothing that is going to make you have to run out to the store to fight the crowds.

Nothing that is exhausting.

Just something simple. Yet delicious. And super, duper easy.


You with me?

Okay good.

Got a few potatoes in your pantry? I thought so.


If not, it’ll take you 2 minutes to grab them in the produce section and race to the check out before the looney madness starts in the food stores.


All you need are a few potatoes, olive oil and dried thyme. Not complicated. Not expensive. Not exhausting.

Just slice, coat and pop those sliced potatoes into the oven and you’re done.

And then you can make my homemade ketchup (instead of that processed bottle in your fridge) and dip these babies into the ketchup for a fabulous snack.



It’s that easy.

You’ll thank me in a few days.


Trust me.


They’ll fit so nice and perfect on the table with your other healthy holiday recipes.



Merry Christmas!
