Took Krislady's advice and tried this as a sandwich spread - wonderful.

We made this recipe exactly as written, and, as is, we found it just "OK." We used a melon baller both to hollow out the baby white potatoes and to fill them. While somewhat labor-intensive, it could be worth it for a great appetizer. And the filling was absolutely wonderful. I could easily see it as a spread for bagels or even a sandwich. However, stuffing it into the plain baby potatoes detracted from the flavor. We ate about half of the potatoes and cut up the rest, added a little non-fat yogurt and some more seasonings and made a small potato salad. It's a great idea, and I may make the filling again - but not in this application.

I made these for a neighborhood potluck. They were easier to make than I thought they's be. A tomato corer works wonderfully! I tripled the recipe and hand-selected tiny new potatoes of uniform shape and size at the Farmer's Market. Before steaming, I cut a flat side one the bottom of each (to prevent sliding in the platter). I recommend using white-skinned potatoes because they camoflauge the skin "slides" (after cookin and scooping) better than the red. Not only did I garnish with fresh parsley, But I added chopped parsley to the filling mixture. The verdict from the neighbors is 5 stars!!! Thanx for pointing your recipe out to me. It was great and I'll make it again.
