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!
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.
