I chose not to include bacon since I was serving these with Spam. Wonderful little appetizers. Would be great with bacon too. Our daughter thought it had too much garlic but everyone else thought it was great as is.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs potatoes, small, red (new)
- 2 -3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1⁄3 cup green onion, minced
- 1 teaspoon basil, dried
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄2 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
