Mini Loaded Red Potatoes

These sports bar–inspired creations are roasted instead of deep-fried. Choose the smallest red potatoes you can find to keep them easy to eat. Little chefs can scoop out and stuff the potatoes and then sprinkle with paprika.



Ingredient Line: 
10 red potatoes (2 inches in diameter)
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. salt
Ingredient Line: 
3 pieces vegetarian bacon
Ingredient Line: 
5 tsp. low-fat sour cream
Ingredient Line: 
10 tsp. shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
Ingredient Line: 
6 chives, finely chopped


1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Slice off small portion from one side of each potato to create flat base. Toss potatoes in bowl with oil and salt. Arrange potatoes, cut-side down, on baking sheet. Bake 20 to 30 minutes, or until soft.

2. Meanwhile, cook bacon according to package directions, then chop.

3. Allow potatoes to cool slightly, then slice top off each potato and scoop out 1 Tbs. flesh. Stuff each potato with 1/2 tsp. sour cream and 1 tsp. cheese, then sprinkle with chives and paprika.

Comments on this Recipe

Delicious! A huge hit at our New Year's Eve party.

We love these! I've adapted the recipe into slightly more of a twice-baked mini-potato. Chopped sauteed spinach, the potato innards, and cheese go back into the potato and get baked. When they come out, the sour cream & chives go on, sprinkle atop with veg bacon bits and paprika. Spicy salt for those who like heat.

these are so delicious and cute! Great finger food for parties!

These are the bomb diggity! So tasty! And easy to make.

The instructions for assembly seem incomplete. Shpuld I Mia the sour cream and cheese before stuffing? The bacon is not mentioned in the final assembly. Mix it in with cheeses, or sprinkle on top?

Umm, the sour cream isn't exactly vegetarian.

Unfortunately sour cream is not a vegetarian food. I would use Greek yogurt instead.

@Sylvia Albrecht: Sour cream is vegetarian. It's just not vegan. But, then, neither is the cheese.

Sour cream is vegetarian. If you want vegan you would have to use a vegan sour cream. Making this for the super bowl! Yum! Go Broncos!
