Loaded Baked Potato Rounds

I was trying to create an appetizer that could be served at my teenaged daughters birthday party that the kids would love but that would appear elegant enough for the adults to be interested as well. These are made with simple ingredients yet yield a sophisticated result. Feel free to get creative with the flavors. Try shredded white cheddar in place of mozzarella or thyme instead of the rosemary. Take it up another notch by topping the rounds with smoked fish. —Amanda Digges, South Windsor, Connecticut

    I was hoping these would taste like potato skin appetizers but they didn't. I think the cold topping on the hot little potato rounds just didn't work that well for me. The sour cream just went kind of liquid when it hit the hot potato. I looked the topping on its own, maybe as a dip or spread for crackers and even the potato rounds were good on their own just not together. I think I'll keep the recipe just for the topping.

    Are these potatoes already baked or boiled or what?

    A fun appetizer and very tasty. Just make sure you salt them enough before you bake them.
