- 24 small red potatoes (about 2-1/2 pounds)
- 1/4 cup butter, cubed
- 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
- 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon, divided
- 2/3 cup sour cream
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon paprika
- Scrub potatoes; place in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain.
- When cool enough to handle, cut a thin slice off the top of each potato. Scoop out pulp, leaving a thin shell. (Cut thin slices from potato bottoms to level if necessary.)
- In a large bowl, mash the potato tops and pulp with butter. Set aside 2 tablespoons each of cheese and bacon for garnish; add remaining cheese and bacon to potatoes. Stir in the sour cream, egg, salt and pepper. Spoon mixture into potato shells. Top with remaining cheese and bacon; sprinkle with paprika.
- Place in an ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 375° for 12-18 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°. Yield: 2 dozen.

This recipe was demonstrated at a TOH Cooking Show I attended last year with my Mother-In-Law and we decided to make them together for a family dinner today, They turned out delicious. I don't remember it seeming as tedious for the Cooking Show host to core out the potatoes as it was for us, but maybe that's because we are not a "Chef" . But even though it was a little tricky to dig out the pulp without breaking the skin, we still loved the end result. I will make them again.
I had six kids at the house for Easter egg hunting and made these for all of them. My daughter is a gluten-free vegetarian so I made half sans bacon and half with bacon. Everyone LOVED them. I think next time I might put a little bit of green onions on the top. All of the kids asked that I please please please make them again soon!

Carol, one thing to remember is that you can get 'Good CLA' or 'Good fat' in Bacon too.....grass fed with No antibiotics, no hormones etc!!! As with butter or any other GOOD FAT! Do your homework!!
