The definition of an Appetizer- food or drink to stimulate the appetite… and then keep on going if you can! I love appetizers and I have a couple of favorites I have collected throughout the years. The first one I stumbled upon very recently…Bacon Wrapped Red Skin Potatoes. Who would have thought? But let’s be realistic…how could you not have thought? I originally got a variation of this recipe from http://www.thekitchn.com (one of my favorite go to sites, has a TON of amazing recipes), but I changed it a little. In that recipe, it called for olive oil and rosemary, both were unnecessary to me…and everyone hated the sauce that went with it. So I nixed them.
-Bacon Wrapped Redskin Potatoes
1 1/2 lbs of redskin potatoes, cubed
1 lb of bacon sliced in thirds
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
dice potatoes in cubes. Wrap in bacon and secure with toothpicks. Sprinkle with Salt and pepper and bake until potatoes tender and bacon is crispy at 350 degrees , about 10-12 minutes.
When out of the oven and bacon is crispy, top with shredded cheddar cheese. serve immediately.
