Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
- 16 ounce package bacon ends and pieces diced
- 16 small Dutch yellow baby potatoes about 1 1/2 pounds
- 2-4 small jalapeno with seeds stems removed, diced (amount depends on how spicy you like them)
- 5.2 ounce boursin cheese
- 1/2 cup extra sharp white cheddar grated
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Cook bacon according to directions in bacon ends and pieces
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Arrange potatoes directly on oven rack and cook for 15 minutes. Turn and continue cooking another 15 minutes or until tender. If your potatoes are really small, this will take less time. Remove from oven; cool 10 minutes.
Cut potatoes in half crosswise. Carefully scoop out as much pulp from each half that you can, leaving the shells intact. Combine potato pulp, boursin cheese, cheddar, butter, sour cream, jalapeno, and half of the cooked bacon in a bowl. Spoon about 1 heaping teaspoon potato mixture into each potato shell until all of the mixture has been used. Arrange stuffed potatoes on a baking sheet and top each one with remaining bacon, slightly pressing bacon down so that it sticks. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
