We had a wonderfully chilly Labor Day weekend and I spent most of Monday in my kitchen cooking soup and other fall treats. We enjoyed an awesome dinner of barbecue ribs, rolls, sweet corn, and baked potatoes.
I love the simplicity of baked potatoes, but I find them a little boring to serve. In my house, we eat them with butter, sour cream and shredded cheddar. I decided to try something different and mixed all 3 of these things together in an effort to make topping our potatoes a little easier. I created these little potato topper balls and they were a huge hit! They made our usually boring baked potatoes a little more fun.
Baked Potato Toppers
1 stick butter, softened
2-3 Tbsp sour cream
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
In a small bowl mix softened butter with the sour cream and cheese. Add a small amount of salt and pepper to taste. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out the mixture onto a plate into individual serving sizes. Refrigerate until ready to use.
When placed in a warm potato, all of the ingredients melt together and the potato just soaks it up…delicious!
Want your baked potato to have a little more of a kick? Try mixing in cooked, chopped bacon or diced green onions. Maybe even a dash of chili powder! Mix it up until you find your perfect combination.
