You say Potato, I say Tomato…
So, let’s call the whole thing off…
Oh, but no, we love each other so we better call the calling off off!

Here’s a quick and easy recipe for a Valentine’s day cocktail party or just to enjoy with your honey.

And for those of you having a bitter single-friendly gathering, they are still perfect because they are called Love BITES.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Slice the sides off the new potatoes lengthwise. Slice the potatoes into about 1/2″ slices {Each new potato gets the sides sliced off. Then, the potato is sliced in half to make the slices in which the hearts are then cut from.}
In the center of each potato, using the mini heart cookie cutter, cut out mini hearts and place in a mixing bowl.
Toss the potates with 1 teaspoon of the rosemary, olive oil, salt, pepper and 1 Tablespoon of the parmesan cheese. Spread out onto the baking sheet in one layer and place in the preheated oven. Cook for 15 minutes, flip, top with *tomato hearts, remaining parmesan cheese and rosemary, season with more salt and pepper and cook for 15 more minutes.
*While the potatoes are cooking, slice the tomatoes into thin slices and cut out into the same size and number of mini hearts as the potatoes.
Place a food pick in each heart and serve.
