Who wouldn’t love a cheesy treat with a fiery kick? That’s exactly what nduja potatoes are like.

As the name suggests, the potatoes are seasoned with chili nduj paste. Recipe created by Mari Moilanen confesses that he has a particularly close relationship with his ndu, because food like food gets a delicious taste from it. Just like these crispy fried potato skins.


The leftover ripe potato is perfect for, for example, a tasty tuna salad. Add scallion stalks, sun-dried tomatoes, vinegar and olive oil to the tuna and potato salad.

The potato is also suitable for a Spanish-style omelette or pot pie.

Nduja potatoes

(for 4 people)

8 small baked potatoes (e.g. Rosamunda)

150 g of mature cheddar cheese

3. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add ndu. Grate in the garlic cloves. Grate the cheese as well.

4. Grease the potato halves on both sides with ndujava. Divide the remaining ndu in the pot on the potato skins and sprinkle grated cheese on top.

6. Season the potatoes with salt and chop the parsley on top.
