Twice Baked Potato Bites! – These were a huge hit and so easy to make! Not sure I can have another party without them!
I love little bites….I could live on appetizers alone! These beauties are about two bitefuls and were a hit at my last party!
Nothing says yum like double stuffed anything with bacon and cheese. Lets get this party started!
What you will need:
- small red or white potatoes
- cream cheese
- sour cream
- grated cheese
- chives or green onions
How to make Twice Baked Potato Bites:
Roast up some small potatoes in olive oil with a touch of salt.
This recipe makes 12 little bites. So easy to double or triple…or quadruple !
Next, cool potatoes enough to handle. Using a melon baller or small spoon, scoop out the middle and save the insides to mash up with all the yummy stuff!
PRO TIP: Do not chill the potatoes to scoop later. The creamy insides will firm up and make it difficult to get a creamy mash. Best to do when warm.
I was one shell short of a full load and couldn’t stuff my last potato. Why do they not put enough potato in the potato! Thats it, I’m writing the Council for Potatoes!. Not enough potatoes in your potatoes people!
Our Twice Baked Potato Bites are all stuffed and ready to go!
Can I make these potato appetizers ahead of time?
- Yes! Complete the stuffing and refridgerate for up to 3 days in closed container. Bring to room temp and bake!
