Recipe for a big football party!

Amount Measure Ingredients
20 small new potatoes
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 cup extra-sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup sour cream
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
    paprika, for garnish

To prepare:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F
  2. Pierce the potatoes with a fork, arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer and brush with the olive oil. Roast, uncovered, until tender, 40 to 45 minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle.
  3. Halve the potatoes; using a melon baller or a teaspoon, scoop out most of the flesh into a bowl. Return the potato skins to the baking sheet. Coarsely mash the potato flesh in the bowl and stir in the cheese, sour cream, 1 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Sprinkle the insides of the skins with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; stuff each with the potato-cheese mixture and sprinkle paprika on top (if using).
  4. Bake the stuffed potato skins until golden-brown on top, about 15 to 20 minutes.
