Ok, as if by now y’all hadn’t noticed I’m just a wee bit obsessed with bacon. I wish I weren’t, it’s not great for you, but it just tastes so good. So good. (Remind me someday to tell you about the time my dad’s boss and his wife, who kept kosher, took us to a really fancy place for brunch, and I loaded down my plate with bacon, ok?)
So, is there anything better than bacon? Turns out, there is.
Potatoes wrapped in bacon.
Without further ado, here’s the recipe.
Pre-heat the oven to 375F. You’ll need about 25 or so pieces of thinly-sliced bacon and around 3 pounds potatoes (I like the small new red potatoes, but any variety will do). Now take those slices, and wrap one or two pieces of uncooked bacon around each potato and secure with a dampened skewer. Do this until they’re all wrapped. You’ll place the potatoes in a baking dish with about 1 inch of space in between each potato. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until tender. Prepare the dipping sauce by combining 1/2 cup sour cream, 1 clove grated garlic, 2 teaspoons chopped chives and a pinch of sea salt in a small bowl. Stir quickly to combine. Cover and refrigerate until you need to use it. Remove potatoes from oven and place on a serving dish. Serve potatoes with a bowl of the sour cream dipping sauce.
Can’t… get… enough… of… the… stuff. These would make a great appetizer as your Thanksgiving guests arrive.
Any other ideas of stuff to wrap in bacon, y’all? You know I’ll try it!
