Your friends and family will love these mini potato bites. I serve them with sour cream and “hot salsa”. People that know me best wouldn’t be surprised that I add hot salsa!
1½ Pounds red potatoes
1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ Cup mayonnaise
½ Cup sliced green onions
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
10 Slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
Sour cream, optional
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
On a large baking sheet place potatoes and bake 35 minutes or until tender. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Cut each potato in half, then cut a thin slice from bottom of each potato half to allow them to sit flat. With a small spoon, scoop pulp from potatoes leaving a ¼-inch shell.
Place the pulp in a bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients. Spoon or pipe potato filling into the potato shells. Arrange filled shells on baking sheet and broil 3 minutes or until golden and heated through. Serve with sour cream.
