Recipes | Entertaining | Cocktail Party Budet Friendly Menu | Fingerling Potatoes with Blue Cheese & Bacon


This is the perfect solution to "man-friendly" hors d'oeuvres... they are basically dressed up potato skins. You can make them with any popular potato topper - sauteed mushrooms, cheddar, sour cream, chives, caviar, etc.  I like to get a variety of colors of the fingerling potatoes - it makes it that more special.

Fingerling Potato Canapes with Blue Cheese & Bacon

20 fingerling potatoes, sliced in half length-wise
8 ounces of blue cheese*
6 slices of bacon, cooking and crumbled*

In a large pot with a steam tray, put 1-inch of water in the bottom.  Pile the potatoes in the steam tray and cover the pot.  Steam the potatoes for 10-12 minutes, or until they are tender.  Drain the potatoes and place them cut side up on a baking sheet.  Top with blue cheese, then bacon.  Place under a low broiler for 2-3 minutes until the blue cheese melts.  These can be served immediately, or are great at room temperature, too.

*I just go to the salad bar at our grocery store and get the blue cheese & pre-cooked bacon - a huge money and time saver.

These Roasted Beef & Horseradish and Roasted Red Pepper & Blue Cheese Canapes are part of my "Budget Friendly Holiday Cocktail Party Menu."  For all of the recipes and tips for creating a memorable, low-cost cocktail party, visit the "Budget Friendly Holiday Cocktail Party Menu" Page!
