The Holiday season is quickly approaching and we’ll all be searching for the perfect appetizers and holiday dishes to make. I love potatoes and think they are just he perfect addition to any meal- roasted whole or cut with rosemary and garlic, but my new favorite are these adorable potato bites.
Yes, I just called these adorable.
I found this recipe in a Cooking Light magazine, but didn’t add the small amount of lemon juice that was in the original recipe therefore had to change the name (they called them Lemon-Caper Parmesan Salad Bites). I don’t think the lemon would’ve added much as these were already very flavorful. I also cut back on the amount of capers used and changed the preparation just a little.
Don’t you just love finger food? Pick it up, pop it in your mouth- no mess, no utensils needed!
(and here is where I am missing a picture or two of a close-up of the potatoes- am having issues finding them so I might be making these again this week to photograph again. Plus I don’t like the way these pictures came out. Yes, I am crazy).
These are basically like a twice baked potato in a mini version. I loved them!
You could customize this for your crowd- leave out the capers for the kids, add some cheddar or do half and half which is what I did when I tested out this recipe.
Then after eating a few and realizing how delicious they are, I put the rest of the bites in tupperware and reheated them the next night for dinner and they turned out great! So they make a great do-ahead party appetizer or side dish for the Holidays when we need all the help we can get spacing out our meal prep.
Thanks Cooking Light- you never disappoint!
Have a great week friends!
