    Fingerling Potato Bites with Bacon and Sour Cream.

    Makes 24 Hors D’Oeuvres

    24 Fingerling Potatoes-boiled in water until tender, drained, cooled

    ¾ Cup Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt

    4 Bacon Slices-cooked, drained, chopped finely

    As Needed Canola Oil for Frying

    To Taste Salt and Black Pepper

    As Needed Chives or Flat Leaf Italian Parsley

    • Remove a thin lengthwise slice from each potato to allow it to sit flat. On the opposite side facing up, cut a small lengthwise incision down most of the length of the potato. Using both of your thumbs and forefingers grip each end of the potato and push inward to puff up the center of the potato.

    • Heat up a deep fryer to 350°f. Place six potatoes at a time into a basket and lower into the hot oil. Fry until the skin gets slightly crisp and the center of the potato gets golden brown. Drain and season with salt and black pepper.

    • Lay out on a serving platter and garnish each potato with a small dallop of the sour cream, finish with a sprinkling of bacon and chives. Enjoy!
