FETA POTATOES WITH CHIVE & SWEET PEPPERS

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.

5Season 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.
