  • Once the fingerling potatoes have cooled off, split them in half‐length wise.
  • Using a very small parisenne or melon baller, scoop out the potato meat without breaking the skin. Leave a little potato on the skin so they are easy t o handle.
  • Place the scooped potato in the bowl with the mashed Yukon potato. Mash the potatoes together.
  • Add the cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, truffle pate, sour cream, chives and salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Carefully spoon or pipe the filling into the fingerling potato skins.
  • Place on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper and bake for 10 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Remove from the oven, place on a serving tray, garnish with chives and serve.
