Looking for the perfect 4th of July party pleaser? Last year I hosted a Summer Tea Party and served these darling and delicious Potato Salad Bites. The recipe is my most popular pin on Pinterest and I thought it worth resharing. These savory bites are bursting with the flavors of cheese, bacon and potato. Yummy, right?! Whether you are hosting the holiday party or just need something wow-worthy to take to the picnic, these potato bites will be a winner with everyone!
Potato Salad Appetizer Bites:
2 dozen red potatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 ½ cups sour cream
1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup bacon, cooked and crumbled with some reserved for garnish
Diced green onions for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut potatoes lengthwise and brush each side with olive oil. Place face down on a baking sheet and cook 20-25 minutes until the skins are crisp. Let cool.
Once your potato halves are cool, scoop out most of the center and place in a bowl. Add your sour cream, cheddar cheese and bacon to the potato and mix. Add salt and pepper to taste. Top each potato skin with some of the mixture. Garnish with the extra bacon and green onions.
These potato bites are great made in advance and served chilled. Get creative and swap out the cheddar cheese with your favorite kind. Just like a baked potato, you can garnish these little cuties any way you please. Now, you just need to hang the flag, buy some sparklers and enjoy!
