Party Potatoes

Party Potatoes

If you can boil water, you can make these elegant individual appetizers!


  • 15 small new potatoes (1 1/2 pounds)
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • Dill weed sprigs or chopped fresh chives


  1. Heat 1 inch water to boiling in 3-quart saucepan.
  2. Add potatoes. Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender; drain and cool.
  3. Cut potatoes in half; place cut sides up on serving tray. (Cut thin slice from bottom of each potato half, if necessary, to help stand upright.)
  4. Top each potato half with 1 teaspoon sour cream and dill weed.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours or until chilled.

Yield: 30 appetizers

You save more than time by not peeling potatoes. You save nutrients, as well! All of the fiber and most of the vitamin C is located in or just under the skin.

Top potatoes and sour cream with a small amount of red caviar for an elegant party appetizer.
