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!
How to make Twice Baked Potato Bites
Roast up some small potatoes in olive oils with a touch of salt.
This recipe is for 12. I think you need to double it…just sayin’.
Scoop out the middle and save the insides to mash up with all the yummy stuff!
I was one shell short of a full load. Why do they not put enough potato in the potato! Makes me sooo mad. Thats it, I’m writing the Council for Potatoes! Not enough potatoes in your potatoes people!
All stuffed and ready to go! I’m sporting 11 out of 12 potato skins and thats pretty darn good…wonder what happened to that empty sad potato shell…:). Little snack for the cook maybe?
These Twice Baked Potato Bites can easily be made several days in advance.
To more potatoes in my potatoes!
