These easy 3-ingredient Stuffed Mini Potatoes are a perfect one-bite appetizer for any time of the year.
Today I’m sharing my latest infatuation: these Greek flavoured stuffed mini potatoes.
I enjoy creating finger foods and small bites. I love making tapas and tiny appetizers, probably because I enjoy eating so much and I want to taste IT ALL! Tiny bites give me that opportunity and, in my experience, my guests like them too. If you’ve been to my home, you’ll know that I have quite a collection of tiny tasting plates, bowls, cups, shot glasses, spoons . . . some might say I’m obsessed.
This is an easy 3-ingredient recipe. Just toss mini potatoes in a little olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and roast in the oven until fork-tender and crispy. I used a lemon-infused olive oil, but any quality extra-virgin olive oil will do.
While they’re getting all crispy in the oven, stir together some goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and olives. If you’re not a fan of goat cheese, crumbled feta is delicious too.
Once out of the oven, scoop a tiny bit of potato out of the center and fill with the cheese mixture. Garnish with chives or parsley, if you like, and serve right away. These stuffed mini potatoes make one warm creamy bite, full of the flavours of the sunny Mediterranean!

- 1/2 cup creamy goat cheese
- 2 tbsp oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, finely chopped
- 2 tbsp quality olives of your choice, finely chopped
- Heat oven to 425°F.
- Scrub the mini potatoes and slice in half. If using the tiny ones, just slice a little off one side of each potato so they will sit upright.

- Heat a baking sheet with low edges in the oven for about 4 - 5 minutes.
- Arrange the potatoes on the sheet so they are spaced apart and not touching one another.
- Roast for 20 - 25 minutes, turning half way through the cooking time until the are easily pierced with a fork.
- Remove from oven and cool slightly before filling.
- While the potatoes are cooking, stir together the goat cheese, chopped sun-dried tomatoes and olives.
