Easter Brunch: Twice Baked Mini Potatoes

This recipe is a brunch favorite at our house and most of these yummy potatoes are usually gone before the table is even set! This is the recipe I follow when making them, but you can add any other ingredients you like. Enjoy!

Twice Baked Mini Potatoes

Ingredients:
  • 4 slices center-cut bacon
  • 24 small potatoes, washed and dried (about 1- 1 1/2 in in diameter)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup extra-sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chives or green onions, snipped
Preparation:
Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.


In a small saute pan over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Cool and then chop.

Place the potatoes in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil, salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Bake in the oven on a cookie sheet for 45-60 minutes until they are cooked through; you may have to rotate the pan so they brown evenly.

Remove from the oven. When cool enough to handle, cut in half. Using a small teaspoon or melon baller, scoop out the inside of each potato half, leaving a small border from the edge. Remove all the potato "guts" and place in a medium size mixing bowl. To the bowl, add the milk, butter, sour cream, cheese, reserved bacon, chives, salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix to combine.

Place filling in a Ziploc bag, snip the end of one corner (use like a pastry bag) and divide the filling among all the hollowed-out potatoes. Using the same cookie sheet you roasted them on(or you can bake them in a small muffin pan, to prevent them from tipping over), bake the potatoes in the oven until the tops are golden brown. Remove from oven and serve.
