These little one bite appetizers were a big hit as an appetizer served with champagne, so start off the evening!
I saw something along these lines, I can’t remember where, but it was easy enough to remember, or at least inspire.
You will need:
- about a dozen really small potatoes, I used Baby Dutch Yellow Potatoes
- 3 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
- egg salad (see below)
Take about a dozen baby potatoes, boiled in salt water until tender, and left to cool. Then pop them in the fridge to firm up and make them easy to slice in half.
Meanwhile, make some egg salad:
- 3 hard boiled eggs
- 1 stalk of celery, finely diced
- 3-4 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1-2 tablespoons sour cream
- 1/2-1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- Salt & pepper, to taste
I made my egg salad in a mini processor, and it yielded a wonderful and smooth purée, with just enough texture. The celery needs to be really small or it clogs the piping tip.
Take potato half and remove a small divot with a melon baller, this will give a nice spot to pipe your egg salad, place a healthy dollop and top with crumbled bacon or a little caviar.
These are quick easy and delicious! Your guests will think you are a star!!
