Stuffed Baby Red Potatoes

This recipe just says "party!" The ingredients are basic, but the finished appetizer looks like you worked a lot harder than you did. —Carol Bess White, Portland, Oregon
  • Total Time
    Prep: 45 min. Bake: 15 min.
  • Makes
    2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 24 small red potatoes (about 2-1/2 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon, divided
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika

Directions

  • Scrub potatoes; place in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  • When cool enough to handle, cut a thin slice off the top of each potato. Scoop out pulp, leaving a thin shell. (Cut thin slices from potato bottoms to level if necessary.)
  • In a large bowl, mash the potato tops and pulp with butter. Set aside 2 tablespoons each of cheese and bacon for garnish; add remaining cheese and bacon to potatoes. Stir in the sour cream, egg, salt and pepper. Spoon mixture into potato shells. Top with remaining cheese and bacon; sprinkle with paprika.
  • Place in an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 375° until a thermometer reads 160°, 12-18 minutes.
