One Bite Baked Potato Rounds

I am so pleased to let you all all know, my awesome readers, that I am now a member of the Food Bloggers of Canada. Through this great group of Canadian food writers, I have the opportunity to work with food companies and producers who hope to make their products known to the world. My first-ever opportunity came through the Little Potato Company. I signed up to write about little potatoes and a few weeks later found an amazing care package of potatoes on my doorstep. How fabulously random and exciting!DSCN0785

For this recipe, I used the Little Potato Company’s Baby Boomer potatoes. After trying them out on their own for breakfast, I discovered a beautifully fluffy texture to these treasures, that reminded me so much of a baked potato. As I had my niece’s third birthday party just around the corner, I thought one bite baked potatoes would be the perfect party snack for little fingers. DSCN0786

I started off by greasing a baking sheet with butter. DSCN0787

Then I began preparing the little beauties. DSCN0788

I lobbed off both sides of the baby boomer to create the perfect, bite-sized round. DSCN0789

I placed the mini round on the greased baking sheet.DSCN0790

And repeated a couple dozen times. DSCN0792

Next step was to brush the other side of the potatskies with butter, to give them a full-on awesome flavour!DSCN0793

Here they are, all ready for the oven. DSCN0800

Bake them at 375 for about 20 mins, turning once. IMG_1641

Top with your favourite baked potato toppings (I opted for sour cream and bacon bits!)IMG_1642And enjoy the wonders of a little potato.

One Bite Baked Potato Rounds

You will need:

1 bag of Little Potato Company Baby Boomer Potatoes

1/4 cup salted butter

Your favourite baked potato toppings (I used sour cream and bacon bits, but feel free to add aged cheddar cheese, chives or green onion too!)

Preheat oven to 375. Grease a baking sheet with 1/8 of your butter. Prepare your potatoes by removing the top and bottom, creating nice little rounds. Transfer them to greased sheet. Melt the remaining butter and brush tops of potato rounds. Bake at 375 for 20 mins, turning once, until potatoes are golden-brown on top. If using cheddar cheese as a topper, grate cheese and top each potato with a small amount. Transfer potatoes back to the oven until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and top with sour cream, bacon bits and chives or green onion (if using). Enjoy as a perfect party or holiday appetizer.
