We love Potatoes in our house and we also love FETA CHEESE, so I thought what better way to create a fantastic recipe than to combine the two ingredients together. I had never done that before.

This recipe is the results of my combined ingredients, a slight twist to a regular potato dish.

The uniqueness of the flavor of the Feta being added to the potatoes, created a great flavor combination. It was different in taste, but in a great tasting kind of way. I usually add Mozzarella or cheddar to many of my cooked dishes, but this one tasted so good, I know I will be adding it again.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Start with a large non stick skillet, I used a 16 inch size.
2
Add 1/4 cup of butter plus 2 tablespoons of olive or canola oil. Turn fire to medium high heat.
3
Peel wash & cube potatoes.
4
Chop onions and add potatoes, chive & onions to skillet. If using fresh chive do use more than a tablespoon full.
5
Season Potatoes with spices, more if you prefer, I tend to use less salt because the feta tend to be a bit salty, but use your own judgement.
6
Add both chopped peppers and garlic to skillet. May need to add a small amount of water to prevent potatoes from sticking.
7
Stir potato mixture to blend together. Continue to cook over medium high heat, till potatoes and peppers are tender about 15 to 18 minutes or so.
8
Add the crumbled Feta and shredded mozzarella if using and stir to blend with the potatoes. Cover with lid and allow cheeses to melt slightly. Add your favorite Entree.
9
Add your favorite Entree.
