Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds baby yellow potatoes
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepperto taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices bacondiced
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
  • Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold salted water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and simmer until just tender, about 15 minutes; drain well and let cool slightly.

Toppings:

  • Top each potato with sour cream, bacon and chives.
