Parmesan Potato Bites

I’m a huge appetizer freak. Many times Jeremy and I had a Sunday supper of just appetizers! These babies would be perfect for an occasion like that or for throwing a party! These potato bites are similar to twice baked potatoes but a touch more sophisticated. The addition of my beloved parmigiano reggiano really amps up the flavor!

Parmesan Potato Bites
 
 
Ingredients
  • 3 pound bag red bliss potatoes
  • 3 Tbls olive oil
  • 6 Tbls butter
  • ¼ Cup sour cream
  • 2 Tbls parmigiano reggiano
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Scrub potatoes under water and place in oven safe dish. Pierce with fork or paring knife in a few spots all over the potatoes.
  2. Add the olive oil and salt and pepper. Toss with spoon or hands until evenly coated. Cover with foil and bake until a fork inserted has no resistance. About a hour and a half.
  3. When potatoes are done baking, let them sit on the counter until they are cool to the touch or at least 30 minutes.
  4. With a small spoon, scoop out the insides of the potatoes and place in a bowl. Be careful to not tear the skin. Add in the butter, sour cream, cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Mash with potato masher or the back of a fork until thoroughly combined. Fill the potato skins with the mixture and place back into the oven until just slightly browned on top and heated through. About 15 minutes.
  5. Serve with more cheese grated on top, enjoy!

    Hi, nice to “meet” you via a blog hop! I just love these parmesan potato bites–a great combo of 2 things my family loves! And it doesn’t look too hard or time consuming–which is a combination I do NOT love, ha! Pinned and shared! Thanks for the great post and beautiful pictures!
