Recipe Time

Prep: 37 Minutes
Cook: 40 Minutes


1 1/2 pounds fingerling potatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
6 ounces smoked spicy sausage, finely chopped
1 cup (4 ounces) finely grated sharp Cheddar cheese
Garnish: chopped chives


1. Preheat oven to 375°. Toss potatoes in olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake 25 minutes or until tender. Let stand until cool enough to handle.

2. Meanwhile, cook sausage in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until brown. Drain on paper towels.

3. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop out pulp, leaving shells intact. Combine potato pulp, sausage, and cheese in a bowl. Season with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

4. Spoon about 1 heaping teaspoon potato mixture into each potato shell. Arrange on a lightly greased baking sheet.

5. Bake 15 minutes or until heated through. Serve with Chipotle-Lime Guacamole. Garnish potatoes, if desired.
