mini baked potato recipe
Hey all you leprechauns, looking for a little something to nibble on while you enjoy that stout? What could be more appropriate on St. Paddy’s Day than a pint…size potato. And in this year of all years. Yes, the United Nations has declared 2008 the year of the potato. So go carb-crazy and indulge in that age-old Irish tradition of suds and spuds. (As if you needed an extra excuse to make this adorable appetizer.)
I know what you’re thinking: Where am I going to find freakishly small baking potatoes? Not to worry. These are actually new potatoes that have been garnished to look like big ones.
Mini Baked Potatoes
- 10 small new potatoes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon salt
- sprinkle of black pepper
- ¼ cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons shredded Irish Cheddar
- 1 tablespoon chopped chives
Preheat oven to 350º. Toss potatoes with oil, salt and pepper. Transfer to baking sheet and bake 45 minutes. Combine sour cream and cheddar in a small bowl. Cut a cross on the top of each potato, and give it a pinch to open slightly. Stuff with sour cream mixture. Garnish with chives.
