Potato Hedgehogs
This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.


4 medium russet potatoes

2 Tbsp. canola oil

1 Tbsp. ranch seasoning

Handful raisins


Preheat oven to 425 F. Wash and dry potatoes. Leaving 1/4 of the potato uncut (to form the head), use a knife to make cuts lengthwise along the potato about 2/3 of the way deep. Turn potato and make cuts 2/3 of the way deep. You should have a checkerboard pattern. Repeat process with remaining potatoes. Mix oil and seasoning in a bowl. Brush each potato with the oil mixture. Bake for 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender. The cuts should separate slightly to form the hedgehog's prickles. Allow to cool for a few minutes. Using a small knife cut two crosses on the head portion for eyes. Put the raisins into each cross. Serve immediately. 

Makes 4 servings.
