Pimento Potato Bites – the perfect, bite-sized party app.

You are going to be all about these Pimento Potato Bites! If you’ve seen my Spinach & Artichoke Mini Potato Skins, you know that I love a little potato (due to the Irish in me) and cheese.  These little guys are perfect for a fresh after party snack (I’m sure they’d be amaze after a few drinkies), a side dish, or in true hostess form, an appetizer.

A quick tribute to St. Patrick’s Day (and all the potatoes).

Before we get to the recipe, I hope that you had a great St. Patrick’s Day (I celebrated St Paddy’s in Rome and it was not quite the same, however, I did have a little whiskey)! I missed all of the Shepard’s Pie, Corned Beef and Dubliner cheese (a must have in my charcuterie mix), but have been making up for it.  If you are game for an Irish Car Bomb in honor of the day, let me know! And make sure you try my Pineapple Cream Cheese Dip (aka Dorothy’s Dip) in honor of Aunt Dorothy McCann and Mary Masterson.

I am excited to share these easy potato bites as The Jolly Hostess twist this week combines Pimento Cheese, cilantro and potatoes for a melty, herbaceous and slightly burnt sharp cheddar mix.  Pimento Potato Bites are specifically for indulging, so you will have to cheat on your diet.  Balance is everything! So savor, enjoy and share this cheesy goodness at your next par-tay.

PS The potatoes on the right are my Spinach & Artichoke Mini Potato Skins and they are delectable served with Pimento Potato Bites. That is, if you think you can handle all that cheese!
