~ Stuffed Baby Potatoes ~

A friend of mine sent me this recipe quite awhile ago...including the photo. She knows how much I love baked potatoes!  These are great for appetizers and easy and inexpensive to make. You might like to serve them if you're having an Oscar party. 

  • 16 small red potatoes
  • Salt and pepper
  • slices bacon 
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream 
  • 3 tablespoons snipped fresh chives
1. Scrub potatoes well, place in a pan and cover with cold water by at least 1 inch. Add 1 tsp. salt, bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until potatoes are tender and a knife can be inserted easily, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain; let cool.

  1. 2. Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat, turning, until crisp, about 12 minutes. Drain on paper towels. When cool, crumble bacon.
  2. 3. Cut each potato in half crosswise. Trim a small slice from the bottom of each half so it stands upright. With a melon baller or teaspoon, remove center of each potato, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Put potato flesh in a bowl and mash with sour cream; season with salt and pepper. Fold in crumbled bacon. Fill each potato half with sour cream mixture and sprinkle with chives (you may have some filling left over). You could also sprinkle with grated cheese too. Serve immediately.
