Baked Potato Toppers

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.
