Loved these! Can't go wrong with a TOH recipe! Having everything on hand I wanted to make these as a side to go with Baked Parmesan Halibut for dinner tonight. My red potatoes were more a medium size then small, so I quartered the batch for just 2 of us. I used light sour cream and egg substitute, otherwise followed the recipe as written. Red skin potatoes seem to have a thinner skin, so be careful when scooping out or you'll go right through it ;) Thank you so much for posting this delicious keeper we'll definitely enjoy again!
These were sooo good! My little girl really liked this. I will be making this again! Thanks so much! Made for Pick a Chef Spring 2009.
This was a tasty recipe, but since I am trying to lose weight I made a few slight alterations. I used turkey sausage instead of the bacon and light sour cream to cut some of the calories. No one noticed and these stuffed red potatoes were all eaten up. I think next time I will cook the potatoes 15 min and not a min longer for greater ease when scooping them out.
