Potato Poppers

I have been waiting to try this new recipe for a long time. I finally got the opportunity last night at my friend's baby shower. They are a mini version of twice baked potatoes. They are delicious!!! The only pain is scooping out the potato from each little half. I think it was worth it. Enjoy. Sky Blue Potatoes (from Real Simple Magazine)

24 new red potatoes, halved lengthwise
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon, plus more for garnish
1/3 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley, plus more for garnish
1/4 red onion, finely chopped

1. Preheat oven to 400. In a medium bowl, toss the potatoes with the olive oil. Place cut side down on a baking sheet and bake until the skins are crisp, about 30 minutes; let cool.

2. Scoop out the center of each potato half and place in a medium bowl. Stir in the sour cream, blue cheese, bacon, parsley and onion. Fill each potato skin with the sour cream mixture and top with more crumbled bacon and parsley.
