These wee nibbles are a great party treat. Just wrap baby potatoes in bacon, sprinkle on on garlic then pop on the barbecue. Serve with salad dressing or ranch.
These were pretty tasty and would make them again next time without the ranch dressing mix. It made them a little too salty. Next time I will roll in garlic olive oil and wrap in the bacon. Depending on the size of your potatoes you might need more bacon. I did par boil my potatoes - cooled and then wrapped them in bacon. They can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator. They are a bit fiddley to assemble - but easy and fast to grill. Keep your eye on them though so they don't go up in flames! *** Yes, these can be done in the oven. Might make for a tasty appetizer. - 25 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made these for a Labor Day party and changed up a few things, but frankly this is a winning combo that would be hard to mess up. I made about 75 for the party (they were gone within 1 hour) so I ended up baking them in my oven. Just too many for the grill. I used baby golden potatoes that I poked with a fork after washing. and placed in a large zip lock back with vandalia onion dressing, fresh ground pepper, a splash of evoo and let sit overnight in the fridge. I wrapped the potatoes with thick cut bacon (tucked the ends on the underside) from GFS (my fav) in the morning and again placed back in the fridge until I was ready to bake. This helped the bacon to set around the potatoe nicely without using toothpicks. I baked them at 400 for about 45 minutes and they were perfect. I served with a side bowl of 'Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce" Next time I might sprinkle with some finely shredded cheddar cheese at the very end of baking, or maybe try these with a bit of brown sugar sprinked on top when rolling up, and just before placing back in the fridge. As I said, this is just one of those recipes that whatever you do, it will be great tasting, and make you look like a wonder in the kitchen! - 09 Sep 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
HAW - thank you for sharing this recipe. It is a great addition to any meat being cooked on the grill. I served these with the Recipe Group choice this week - Marinated Flank Steak with Peppers. These were so delicious - family loved them. And, they were easy to make. I put on metal skewers rather than the toothpicks. It worked great. Already thinking ahead to when I can make these again. - 10 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
