1 Pound Mini Red Potatoes
4 – 6 Slices of Bacon (Depending how much of a bacon fan you are)
8 Ounce Package of Cream Cheese

1. Boil 1 pound whole red new potatoes in salted water until tender, about 10 minutes.
2. While the potatoes cook, fry your bacon slices until crisp, then cool and crumble them.

Drain the potatoes. When they’re cool enough to handle, cut each potato in half and scoop out the interiors into a medium bowl, leaving a potato shell about 1/8-inch thick. Arrange the shells on a baking sheet.
4. Mash the interiors with half of an 8-ounce packaged cream cheese and your freshly crumbled bacon bits. Spoon the filling back into the potatoes and bake in a 350-degree oven until the edges are crispy and the filling is heated through, 15 to 20 minutes.
