Ingredients

  • 48 small red potatoes
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 4 thick-sliced bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives

Directions

Scrub potatoes; place in a Dutch oven and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until tender. Drain.
When cool enough to handle, cut a thin slice off the top of each potato and discard. Scoop out the pulp, leaving thin shells. Cut thin slices from potato bottoms to level if necessary.
In a large bowl, mash the pulp with cream cheese, sour cream, butter, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir in Gorgonzola cheese and bacon. Spoon mixture into potato shells; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Place in two ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with chives. Yield: 4 dozen.
