Stuffed Small Red Potato Appetizer Recipe How To Make Stuffed Small Red Potato Appetizers with bacon and sour cream
I created this stuffed small red potato appetizer recipe. I serve them as appetizers and
sometimes for lunch with a green salad.
I have also put them on a dinner plate with the main entree as a
side dish . These appetizers taste just like their big brother...
a baked potato!

Recipe Type: appetizer, potato, cream, bacon, cheese, side dish
Prep Time: 20 min
Total Time: 20 min
Yield: 40 Appetizers
1-1/2 pounds small red potatoes (about 20)
1 cup sour cream
4 bacon slices, cooked crisp, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons chives, snipped
1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese, finely grated
Fresh rosemary or parsley garnish
Bring potatoes to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and continue cooking until they are fork-tender but still firm, about 8 minutes. Drain; put into cold water to stop the cooking action. Cut potatoes in half without tearing the skin. Scoop out centers with a melon baller leaving a 1/4-inch wall. Trim bottoms of potatoes to sit level, season inside with sea salt.
In a medium bowl combine sour cream, bacon, seasoning salt, black pepper and snipped chives. Spoon sour cream mixture into potatoes; sprinkle with cheddar cheese and serve, or if you prefer they can be placed under the broiler until cheese melts. Either way these stuffed red potatoes are very tasty. Garnish with fresh rosemary or parsley.
Potatoes can be served hot or cold as an appetizer or with a green salad.
