#10DaysofTailgate - Bacon Wrapped Potato Wedges


Welcome to another #10DaysofTailgate recipe post! These little bacon wrapped potato wedges are SO GOOD!! I only made two potatoes worth to go with our dinner and was wishing I'd made more. They were a perfect combination of flavor, tender potato with a little crisp, and that delicious crispy bacon wrapping. I will definitely be making these again, soon. They would be an awesome appetizer or side dish to your favorite grilled goodies! Serve these as they are, or put out some BBQ, ranch dressing, or honey mustard (or whatever your favorite dipping sauce is) for these.

Bacon Wrapped Potato Wedges adapted from Average Betty

Ingredients
3 - 4 medium potatoes (I used red)
1/2 slice of bacon per potato wedge
Seasonings to taste (I sprinkled garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper over mine)

Directions
  1. Scrub your potatoes, peel if desired (I left the skins on). Cut each potato into 6-8 wedges.
  2. Place potatoes in a bowl and cover with cold water, allow to soak for 30 minutes. Drain well. Blot potatoes with paper towels and wipe out the bowl they were in. Return potatoes to bowl and sprinkle seasoning mixture (to taste) over top. Toss to coat.
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  4. Wrap each wedge with half a slice of bacon and arrange on a baking tray.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 25 - 30 minutes, or until potatoes are tender and slightly browned on edges, and bacon is cooked through and crispy. If your bacon doesn't get crisp / browned in the oven, turn the oven to lo broil and let it cook another minute, or until you get the brown color you desire.
  6. Serve with dipping sauces, if desired.
Note: If you're using long potatoes, and half a piece of bacon isn't enough to wrap around, use a full piece of bacon. You can use toothpicks to secure if you'd like, but I found the bacon pieces stayed wrapped ok for the most part, as long as the end of the piece of bacon was against the baking sheet.
