Baby Red Potato Bites

My Dearest Friend Savory,

A mutual friend emailed me yesterday and let me know that you are feeling neglected. I want to take this opportunity to let you know I am so sorry, and I miss you too.

We go way back and I would never choose cupcakes and jello shots over you, I promise. I hope I can make it up to you, perhaps these little potato bites will do the trick.

Talk to you soon.

Love always,


Imagine cool, light sour cream, seasoned with garlic and salt, melting in your mouth with soft warm potato and fresh herbs.

Fancy it up for a party or feed it to your man during game time. Either way,  it’s easy, it’s pretty and it’s certainly savory.

We saved some left over bites and had them as a side dish for dinner the next night too. I will definitely be making these again.

Shopping List (makes a dozen potato bites) 
6 baby red potatoes
Roughly 5-6 large tablespoons light sour cream
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
Fresh chopped chives and parsley

Boil your potato bites in salted water until they are soft and can be easily pierced with a fork on all sides.

Cool potatoes slightly and then cut in halves, also slicing a small part off the bottom so they stand upright.

In a separate bowl mix your light sour cream, salt and garlic. Top each potato with the sour cream. Chop and sprinkle your fresh herbs on top.

    These are super cute! I think all small things are cute. Think about it, kittens, puppies, little stuffed red potatoes. See! These look yummy too!

    These are great little appetizers. I did at one time go to all the trouble to core the potatoes out and stuff with sour cream-but putting it on top is so much easier and it still makes for a great presentation. Yum!

    Thanks for describing what these taste like! Strange how many food bloggers forget to describe the taste of the dishes they post about — the most important thing!

    Your description definitely made me want to make these.
