You Have To Try This Easy And Delicious Stuffed Potato Bites Recipe

Every time I have people over for a party, I make these mini stuffed baked potato bites. They’re full of flavor, easy to cook and I receive a lot of compliments every time I make them.

The best part about this appetizer is you can make them the day before and refrigerate overnight. Then simply pop them in the oven for a few minutes when you’re ready to serve. This lets you party-prep and clean up the day before your guests arrive.

When our guest list includes kids who are picky eaters, it’s really easy to whip up two batches: plain ones with just potatoes and cheese, and then the “adult” version below.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds small red potatoes
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper

  • 3/4 cup parsley, chopped

Recipe Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Drain potatoes and cool in a bowl of cold water.
  • Meanwhile, cook bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  • Remove potatoes from bowl of water. Pat dry with paper towel and cut each in half.

    • Scooped-out insides of potato
    • Sour cream
    • Bacon
