Today I have a special treat just for you! It includes on of my favorite vegetables and one of my favorite indulgences bacon! Oh yah! You know I have been on a major bacon kick lately. Well this past weekend, I was wondering what could I make with these wonderful potatoes that I got from Tastful Selections? Then I took a peek in the fridge and saw bacon that needed to be used, so then I thought, why not try bacon wrapped potatoes? Well it came together beautifully and this has now become a family favorite recipe. I was already requested to make it again! Even Little Jenny loved it!!!
I have to tell you the potatoes turned out perfectly cooked. They are tender, creamy and just darn good! The bacon was slightly sweetened with a smoked flavor. Some of it burnt a little too much, but that’s because I was making the other part of the dinner, while my Husband watched the grill. I have to admit I am the grill master in this house. So my advice is to watch your skewers, so your bacon doesn’t burn!
I used Tasteful Selections Sunrise Medley Potatoes, which are cute little potatoes that come in a different colors, from yellow, to purple to red. They were just the right size to skewer without having to cut them. What’s even better is Tasteful Selections are already pre-washed for you, so no scrubbing is needed. That makes life a little bit easier!Plus the skin is so tender you don’t need to peel your potatoes! Score! I think you will love Tasteful Selection Potatoes, just as much as we do.
I wrapped my potatoes in bacon, two slices per skewer and sprinkled it with a little bit of brown sugar and then added some black pepper. I placed it on aluminum foil and grilled it for 45 minutes. I found the bacon was not cooked enough, so I placed it on the grill. This is where you need to watch it so it doesn’t burn.
