Everyone’s favorite Ahch-To native bipeds, porg obsession is only growing as fans anxiously await the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Cute little porgs stole the hearts of fans when they were shown on screen for just a few seconds during a behind-the-scenes reel shown at D23.
While we wait for their big screen debut, why not make up a fun treat as an homage to all too adorable creatures? Mini potatoes are the perfect porg shape and these savory snacks stand up like a bunch of porglets out for a day on the island shore.
12 small creamer potatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon salt
Nori – dried seaweed sheets
Black sesame seeds
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Prep a small baking pan by lining it with parchment.
Use small paring knife to cut off the tip of the potatoes so they stand tall.
Slice a V-shape to remove the skin from the front.
In a small bowl toss the potatoes with the olive oil. Stand the potatoes up in the prepped baking pan.
Sprinkle with garlic powder and salt.
Bake for 30-35 minutes until cooked through. Let cool slightly.
Cut out small pieces of the nori sheets to create the eye and mouth details, place onto the potatoes. Use black sesame seeds for the nostrils.
Use a toothpick to add small dots of sour cream for eye pupils. Serve immediately and enjoy the galaxy’s cutest potatoes.
