Ingredients

1 lb. Small Gold Potatoes, (about 20 potatoes)

10-12 Bacon Strips, cut in half

2 tsp. Kosher Salt

Sour Cream, for serving

Green Onions or Chives, chopped – for serving

 

You will also need

Large baking sheet

Parchment paper

Wood toothpicks

 

Instructions

Add the potatoes to a medium pot. Cover the potatoes with water by an inch or two and set them over high heat. Bring the water to a boil. Add 2 tsp. of salt and continue boiling for 15- 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. A knife should go through the potatoes easily without resistance, but they should not fall apart.

 

Drain the potatoes completely and allow them to cool.

 

While the potatoes cool

Preheat the oven to 350°F

 

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper

 

When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, wrap each with ½ a bacon strip. Wrap the potato so the bacon goes all the way around, and overlaps some. You may need to stretch it a bit and work it so it covers most of the potato. Secure the bacon in place with a toothpick. Set the potato on the parchment lined baking sheet and continue with the remaining ingredients.

 

Bake the potatoes for approximately 35-45 minutes. Check the potatoes after 30 minutes or so and gauge the remaining cooking time from there.

 

Serve the bacon wrapped potatoes bites with sour cream and chopped green onions.

Cook’s Notes:

If you need more, (or less) of these delicious little bites, just use more potatoes and bacon, the rest is the same. Make sure you don’t overcrowd the baking sheet, set two in the oven and rotate top to bottom, bottom to top occasionally.
