These potato bites are absolutely yummy, their crispy skins and delicious filling will not fail to impress. I like to substitute the sour cream for ricotta cheese!
- 14 halved new potatoes
- 1 tbsp of olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup of chopped fresh chives
Preheat oven to 230 degrees Celcius. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each potato half so they rest flat. On a baking sheet, toss the potatoes with oil; season with salt and pepper, and arrange bottom side down. Bake until tender for around 30 to 35 minutes. Then let them cool on their sheet.
When they are cool enough, scoop out about a teaspoon from the centre of each potato into a medium bowl. Add the sour cream, chives and mash; then season with salt and pepper. Stuff the potatoes with filling.
Bake the potatoes in the oven until lightly browned, for about 15 minutes. Garnish these with chives.
