These little cuties pack all the appeal of a dinner baked potato into the perfect bite-sized appetizer. I top off each one with a dollop of sour cream and coarsely ground pepper.—Sarah Shaikh, Mumbai, India

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds baby red potatoes (1-3/4-inch wide, about 36)
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 cups pimiento-stuffed olives
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Coarsely ground pepper, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Place potatoes in a large bowl. Add 2 tablespoons oil and salt; toss to coat. Transfer to a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake 30-35 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, place olives, onion, pine nuts and garlic in a food processor; pulse until chopped. Gradually add remaining oil; process to reach desired consistency.
  3. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut thin slices off bottoms to allow potatoes to sit upright. Cut an X in the top of each potato; squeeze sides to open tops slightly. Place on a serving platter.
  4. Spoon olive pesto onto potatoes; top with sour cream. If desired, sprinkle with pepper. Serve warm. Yield: about 3 dozen.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, spread in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 5-10 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Or, spread in a dry nonstick skillet and heat over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
