I heard about this recipe from Dawn who found it on the Noble Pig website. (My picture doesn't do it justice, but this is a cooking blog and not a photography blog! If you want to see a good picture (that actually looks as good as it tastes!), click the link for the Noble Pig website.) I just happened to have some tiny red potatoes, bacon and sour cream on hand, so I decided to try it out. Very simple and very filling. Here's how you make them:
Red potatoes, small
Cheddar cheese, shredded
(or whatever toppings you prefer or have on hand)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Scrub potato skins and pierce each potato with a fork several times. Place potatoes on a baking tray 1/2" apart. Bake until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, about 30 minutes.
While still hot, make an opening with a knife and place a slab of butter on the potato followed by a dollop of sour cream. Top with cheese, bacon, chives or whatever toppings you have on hand!
*I don't measure anything, ever, so the amounts you see are my best guesses.
*If it says "Serves 2", that means it serves 2 people who eat small portions and hate leftovers. You may want to double the recipe for Big Eaters.
