Ingredients
Potatoes
  • 2 lb baby Yukon gold potatoes
  • 2 tbsp neutral oil, such as canola oil
  • salt
Lemon-Herb Yogurt Sauce
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • salt, to taste
Toppings for Smoked Salmon Potatoes
  • smoked salmon, ripped into small pieces
  • capers
  • radishes, cut into quarters and sliced thinly
  • fresh chopped chives
  • lemon-herb yogurt sauce (from above)
Spicy Sriracha-Paprika Sauce
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp fresh chopped dill
  • 1 tsp fresh chopped chives
  • 1/2 tsp sriracha hot sauce
Toppings for Bacon Potatoes
  • 2-3 hard boiled eggs, cut into quarter inch slices, then cut in half
  • radishes, cut in quarters and sliced thinly
  • crispy bacon, sliced in small pieces and cooked until crispy
  • cornichons or tiny pickles, sliced thinly
  • fresh chopped chives
  • paprika-Sriracha sauce (from above)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.

  2. Cut potatoes in half crosswise. Cut a thin slice off each half to help the potatoes to stand right on the plate. Turn potatoes in neutral oil and add salt. Bake the potatoes for about 20 - 35 minutes (depending on size and if you have a convection oven or not) or until golden. I flipped mine half way to get both sides golden.

  3. Cool potatoes slightly before they are put in on a serving plate. Add a dollop of each flavored greek yogurt sauce, alternating between flavors, on each potato and top with either smoked salmon, capers and radishes or crispy bacon, radish and cornichon. Garnish with chives on both flavors.
