It’s football season and that means family gatherings and lots of delicious appetizers and snacks to enjoy together! These tasty bites are easy to make and delicious. I enjoy them stuffed or on their own. They are a sure bet to keep family and friends satisfied during the game!
These poppers are delicious on their own or stuffed with your favorite fillings below.
- 20 baby potatoes, I like to mix golden and red
- 10 slices peppered bacon, sliced in half
- 1 Tbs garlic olive oil
- Sea salt & fresh ground pepper
- Cream cheese, fresh chives and jalapeño
- Goat cheese, fresh chives and jalapeño
- Sharp cheddar cheese and jalapeño
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup fresh chives, finely chopped
- Pinch fresh ground pepper if desired
- Mix sour cream and chives well, season with pepper and serve with the poppers as a dip.
- Line a sheet pan/cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil, place rack on top of cookie sheet, poppers will bake on-top of the rack. If you don’t have a rack simply bake poppers on a foil lined sheet pan.
- Potato Poppers: In a medium size bowl toss potatoes with a bit of garlic oil and salt and pepper to taste. Wrap with bacon, making sure to overlap the bacon, secure bacon to the potato with a toothpick.
- Filled Potato Poppers: Carefully cut a whole on the top of each potato, toss potatoes in a bit of garlic olive oil and season with salt and pepper as above. Fill with your desired cheese, a few chopped chives and top with a circular slice of the Jalapeño, wrap in bacon and secure bacon to potato with a toothpick.
- Place poppers on rack and place in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 40-45 minutes, until bacon is crispy and potatoes are tender. Let cool until slightly warm and serve with the sour cream and chive dip.
