Loaded Potato Cocktail Bites
20 Min

Your guests are going to have a hard time staying away from the appetizers table when you set these out. Our Loaded Potato Cocktail Bites are like mini loaded potatoes you can just pop into your mouth. Serve them with a dollop of sour cream and some chopped chives and you've got yourself an impressively delicious party starter.

What You'll Need

  • 3 1/2 cups frozen shredded potatoes, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup ready-to-serve bacon pieces
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat 24 mini muffin cup tins with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine potatoes, egg, flour, salt and pepper; mix well. Add cheese and bacon; mix until combined. Place about a tablespoon of potato mixture into muffin cups and press down gently; cups should be filled to the top.
  3. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until crispy brown. Let cool slightly (about 2 minutes) then run a knife around edges and remove to a platter. Top with sour cream and chives. Serve immediately.


  • These can be prepared and baked ahead. Right before serving, reheat them in a 300-degree F. oven for 10 minutes. Top with sour cream and chives or scallions.

Hellooooo delicious! The only bad thing about these babies is that it's hard to stop yourself from having one after another. Everyone I shared these with was raving about them!

I made these for my girlfriends one night and they gobbled all of them right up! Thank you Mr. Food for all of your fabulous recipes!

These look marvelous! They may even be good enough to cheat for--I don't do well eating potatoes but may have to try these.

Making these Sunday for a Christmas Brunch. Can't wait to try them!

oooo! these look great and sound easy! Would also be really easy to make vegetarian by using bacos!

Easy Tasty

Sounds good, but I would leave out the bacon.

It sounds good.

I make a casserole with similar ingredients. I like the idea of individual servings.

I haven't made these yet, but I plan to soon. These sounds so good and perfect for those mornings when you and your kids needs something quick that you can grab and eat.

This sounds amazing. I don't think you can go wrong with a recipe that contains potatoes, cheese, bacon, and sour cream. I will definitely have to give this recipe a try. Thank you for sharing!

Great snack night recipe.
