Smashed Potato Hors d’Oeuvres

Getting ready for the season of entertaining. Put this one to the side and become the great Hostess of the season.

  • 20 baby potatoes, scrubbed
  • Sour cream
  • salsa (store bought or homemade – your choice)
  • salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prick the potatoes in several places and place on a baking sheet.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes and pierce with a knife to ensure they are cooked through. If not, keep baking until they are.

Put on a rack to cool slightly then, on parchment paper, take a masher and press down with enough pressure to open the potato, but still keeping most of their shape. Season with a tiny amount of salt and pepper. Add a spoonful of salsa, then top with a generous dollop of sour cream.

Arrange on a pretty plate and serve.  These can be room temperature or barely warm. Yumm………………
