Bacon Wrapped Potato Bites with Spicy Sour Cream


This appetizer is easy to make and hard not to love! 


1PoundSmall Red Potatoes
2 1⁄2TeaspoonKosher salt
1 1⁄2Teaspoonfresh rosemary, minced
1TablespoonOlive oil
 UnknownFreshly ground pepper
1Poundthick cut bacon
8Ouncesour cream
1Teaspoonhot sauce
 UnknownSalt and pepper


Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 400°F.

Wash and dry the potatoes. Chop them into 1-inch pieces, keeping the chunks roughly the same size even if they aren't the exact same shape. Put the potatoes in a medium pot, cover with cold water, and bring to a boil. Season the water with 2 teaspoons of salt. Once the water begins to boil, cook the potatoes until just fork tender, 3 to 4 minutes. You want the potatoes to be almost, but not fully, cooked through so they won't fall apart during the next steps.

Drain the potatoes and put them in a large bowl. Add the rosemary, olive oil, remaining salt, and a few grinds of pepper, and toss until the potatoes are evenly coated.

Cut the strips of bacon into thirds. Wrap each potato bite in a piece of bacon, securing it with a toothpick. Put the potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil spaced an inch or two apart. You may need to cook the potatoes in two batches.

Cook the potatoes for 15 minutes, then flip each piece. Cook for another 15 to 20 minutes, until the bacon is cooked through and as crisp as you like it.

Mix the sour cream and hot sauce in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Pile the potato bites on a plate and serve alongside the dip.
