Mini Potato Skins
Updated: Aug 17
Do you love potato skins? You can make your own at home for parties! What is even cuter is having mini bite size appetizer portions of potato skins, a quick yummy bite for your guests as they gather.
15 Small Baby Potatoes
6 slices Bacon, cooked & crumbled
2 TBSP Unsalted butter, melted
freshly ground black pepper
2 cups Cheddar cheese, finely shredded
1/3 Cup Sour Cream
2 TBSP fresh chives, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 400 deg F. Position rack in middle of oven.
Wash potatoes and pierce all potatoes with a fork. Bake until the skins are crispy and cooked through (a knife will slice easily into the potatoes), about 40 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
Slice each potato in half lengthy-wise and scoop out the center. Place scooped potato aside in a bowl and save for later. Arrange the potato halves skin side down on a baking sheet. Brush the insides and skin with melted butter and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Turn halves over & fill each potato half with cheddar cheese & bacon and cook for 2 more minutes until bubbly.
Remove halves from oven & top each with a small dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of chives. Serve & enjoy!
