Bacon Wrapped Potato Bites

Simple appetizer that will fly off your table. The crunch of the bacon with the softness of the potatoes are a great pair. Perfect for a summer BBQ or those upcoming Football parties.

Total Time: ~60 minutes (Prep – 15 minutes | Cook – 30 minutes | Wait – 15 minutes)

Ingredients (makes about 24 pieces):

8 pieces bacon, cut into thirds horizontally
2 golden potatoes, cubed into 1 in. pieces (emphasis on golden potatoes, they are more waxy texture and will hold together, russet potatoes will tend to fall apart a bit more when wrapped)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place a sheet of foil on a cookie sheet and lightly cover with cooking spray. Set aside. Mix oil, thyme, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  2. In a pot, add potatoes with a dash of sea salt. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, cook for about three minutes longer, or until potatoes are slightly soft. Perfect when you can stab a fork in them but still feel a bit of resistance. If your fork can slice through, the potatoes are getting over cooked! Rinse and drain. Place in the oil mixture and let cool completely, about 10 – 15 minutes.
  3. Once potatoes have cooled, wrap each one in the bacon piece. Secure with a toothpick and place on the foil. Repeat until all bacon has been used. Feel free to use more bacon at a larger cut if want more bacon on the potatoes.
  4. Sprinkle potatoes with dash of sea salt and pepper and bake for 10 minutes on each side, or until bacon is crispy.
  5. Let them cool and start snacking!
