4th of July Recipe – Bacon Wrapped Baby Potatoes

Bacon-Wrapped Baby Potato by MyLastBite.com

These bacon wrapped baby potatoes are an easy side dish that I make over and over again, simply because they’re requested over and over again! A tasty and comforting addition to any Fourth of July get-together. Enjoy!

The Recipe:

4 lbs. of baby potatoes, washed & patted dry

1 pack of regular bacon (not thick)

1 package of fried, crispy onion bits: the kind you find in the produce section (optional)

1 tablespoon of chives (optional)

Sour cream (optional)

Toothpicks. Soak in water first to prevent burning.

Pre-heat the oven to 375F.

Depending on the size of the potato, cut and wrap the bacon around the potatoes and secure with a toothpick.

Place potatoes in a baking dish and bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender and bacon is cooked to your liking.

Remove and drain on paper towels before serving.

Optional: Top with fried crispy onion bits, chives and sour cream.

    What a brilliant recipe! Yet another fantastic way to use bacon…

  3. You had me at bacon. Delicious! This would definitely be perfect for July 4th.

  4. What a great idea to wrap the baby potatoes with bacon! This would be an excellent party appetizer!

  5. Bacon-wrapped anything is always the bomb, but I’m really digging these. Could be the picture (which is awesome) but they don’t look greasy or unhealthy, as most bacon-wrapped snacks tend to.

    Thanks for the recipe!! Happy 4th weekend, Jo!

  6. OMG! That’s all I got! Happy4!

  7. Bacon & potatoes that you can eat with your hands! What a perfect combination 🙂
