Bacon Wrapped Potato Wedges – small potatoes, cut into wedges and wrapped in smoky delicious bacon! Serve up with a low-fat blue cheese sauce and you have a perfect game day appetizer.
When I think gameday, I think appetizers. They are the easiest to eat while mingling with your friends and to fill your plate with while watching the game. That is why I decided to go with an appetizer and what better than bacon wrapped anything?! These Bacon Wrapped Potato Wedges bring the best of potato and bacon to your table.
I happened to be shopping at Trader Joe’s last week when I saw a bag of potatoes – red skin, gold, and purple. We don’t put potatoes on the table on a daily basis in our house because of Grumpy’s diabetes, but we do eat them. When I saw these I knew I was going to have to buy them and I knew exactly what I was going to do with them!
I was going to wrap them in bacon! I have made bacon wrapped shrimp, jalapenos, and water chestnuts before, but never potatoes. With the big game heading our way, I thought these would be a great recipe to try out and share with you so you can plan to serve these to your guest on game day!
I was a little concerned that the bacon would roll up and off the potatoes, but I was wrong! These baked up in about 30 minutes, were very simple to make and were super delicious with my low fat blue cheese dressing to dip them in. If your looking for something different but delicious to share with your friends and family while watching the big game next month, then make sure to make these! They will love you for it, I promise 🙂
