Deviled Potatoes


Two Southern classics, deviled eggs and potato salad, join forces to create these two-bite wonders. Make them a day before your get-together, and chill until you head out. When you arrive, they'll be the right serving temperature.

Serves 10 (serving size: 3 pieces)


  • 1 pound petite red potatoes (about 15)

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided

  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • 2 tablespoons brined capers, drained and rinsed

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill

  • 2 teaspoons whole grain mustard

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • Garnish: chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place potatoes in a small bowl, and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of the salt; toss to coat. Spread potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet, and bake until tender when pierced, about 40 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool 15 minutes.

  2. Cut each potato in half crosswise. Carefully scoop out potato pulp into a medium bowl, leaving shells intact. Place shells, cut side up, on baking sheet, and bake in preheated oven until dry, about 10 more minutes. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  3. Stir together potato pulp, sour cream, capers, parsley, dill, mustard, zest, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Spoon mixture generously into each potato shell.
