Contest Entry - Sausage Potato Canapés

Contest:  Jimmy Dean "Crumble Rumble" Contest
Entry:  Sausage Potato Canapés 

This is my second recipe entered in the Jimmy Dean "Crumble Rumble" Contest.  A pretty little appetizer, not that you can tell with my bad pictures (grrr).  In this contest you had to mention on of the ten blogs that participated in promoting the contest.  I chose  A neat blog from a Cowboy's Wife.  If somehow my crazy recipes should win, the Cowboy's wife and I will be going to see Rachel Ray  live in NYC.  We'll have to see what the Jimmy Dean folks think of the dishes first.

Sausage Potato Canapés
Created by Stephanie Almeda

10 small new potatoes
3/4 cup Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles
1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
dashes of salt/pepper
1/4 cup Panko Japanese breadcrumbs

Preheat oven to 475 degrees.  Scrub 10 new potatoes then slice each in half.  Using a melon scoop, scoop out each potato half leaving a nice thick rim on the potato cup.  Take about a 1/4 inch slice of the bottom of each potato to create a flat bottom so the potato cups sit up right.  Bring a quart of water to a boil.  Place potato cups in boiling water till they are just soft when poked with a fork.  Remove potato cups, drain and let cool.  Mix together Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles, mustard, lemon juice, chives, mayonnaise, salt and pepper.  Place about a tablespoon of sausage mixture in each potato cup allowing the mix to mound on top.  Top each potato with a sprinkle of Panko breadcrumbs.  Place potato canapés on a greased baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.  Serve hot as a beautiful appetizer.

Scooping the cups.  I used a teaspoon, but a melon baller would be best.
