Welcoming family and friends over the holiday season sometimes includes a morning breakfast preparation and what a nice way to say good morning to guests than sharing a readied basket of piping hot tasty bites like Sausage, Egg & Cheese Stuffed Fingerling Potato Skins.

Offering another choice in your breakfast entertaining repertoire, much of this dish may be assembled while your oven is preheating or even while cooking your dinner the evening before, simply baking off the fingerlings and scraping out the skins.

Cooked sausage and shallots with the egg and cheese mixture may also be combined in advance leaving the morning task to simply stir, stuff, and bake.

      Happy New Year P.J.! Hope all is well on hoohaablog! These mashed potatoes are quite delicious. I’m also agreeing with Kelly’s Mom that mashing the spuds using a hand mixer really does make a lighter and fluffier potato! Enjoy!
