(Deviled Potato Bites)
Today I am heading over to my parent’s place for my dad’s birthday and I needed a dish that will please everyone and that I eat happily as well! It was a brunch and my dad was making his famous quiche (which are obviously not vegan) so I needed something that would go well with that, but my regular morning smoothie wasn’t going to make the cut.
I searched and searched and found this awesome potato recipe that looks just like deviled eggs (used to be a favorite appetizer of mine). I bought the ingredients and took the plunge!
Even though they took a while to make due to the tedious scooping out the little potatoes… they were a huge hit! Everyone loved them and wanted the recipe!
These appetizers are the perfect addition to a breakfast or holiday meal with guests! They are so good and will definitely fly off the table! ENJOY!!
