These mini stuffed potatoes are incredibly delicious, not to mention cute! They are simply baked and packed with a sour cream, spring onion and chive filling and topped with crispy bacon pieces. They will go down a storm at kids’ parties and can be packed away for a picnic. 

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, 180°C fan, gas 6. Prick the potatoes with the tip of a knife, toss them with olive oil and spread out on a baking tray. Season with salt and bake for 45 minutes, turning half way.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium. Spread the bacon out on a small baking tray and grill for 3-4 minutes, turning half way, until golden and crisp. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper. Once cool, chop into small pieces.
  3. Finely chop 3 of the spring onions. Finely slice the remaining onion on the diagonal and set aside. Combine the 3 chopped spring onions and half the chives with the sour cream and a good grind of black pepper.  
  4. Let the potatoes cool for 10 minutes before handling so they aren’t piping hot. Make a small cut in the top of each baked potato and squeeze the sides gently. Season with a little salt and pepper. Add a heaped teaspoon of the spring onion mixture to each potato. Scatter with the bacon pieces, sliced spring onion and remaining chives, plus a little more black pepper.
