Ingredients for Bacon-Wrapped Baby Potatoes

The ingredients for making bacon wrapped small potatoes include potatoes, bacon, a few other ingredients for making the pesto to marinate the potatoes. Equally important is the dip; if you chose to have a dip for this potato appetizer (which I strongly recommend), you would need sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, etc.

Bacon alone doesn’t cut it!

Oh, kay, foodies, listen, we will not leave everything to bacon! Let’s season the potatoes, so finger-licking good that you will be tempted to bake these baby potatoes without bacon. I will show you how to make my coconut cream parsley pesto that will catapult these bacon wrapped small potatoes to the next level. To make our coconut cream parsley pesto, you will need coconut cream, fresh parsley, Spice Tribe Long-Tail Sunset Thai Blend, garlic, Jalapeno, EVOO, salt, and pepper.

Flavor up with Thai Blend

If you do fancy flavors as we do here, then make sure to make your next bacon wrapped potatoes precisely this way. I know I always preach about making your food the way you want but trust me, these flavors are to live for (I mean too good to ignore)! I used Long-tail Sunset Thai Blend from Spice Tribe; it has a kick of spice that worked so well with the coconut cream. The leftover pesto made the dipping sauce magical. My little ones loved every bite of these baby potatoes!

However, there is an optional step that I highly seriously recommend before marinating the potatoes: Allow them to cool and gently slice the potatoes stopping ½ inch to the bottom of the potatoes. There is no need to place the potato in between the chopsticks like you may do when slicing raw potatoes for hassle back potato recipe. Simply place a potato on a flat surface, and cut. Make sure to check my video to see how easy it is. Making the cuts/slices allow the potatoes to soak up the marinade before wrapping  with bacon.

Tips for the Tastiest Bacon Wrapped Small Potatoes

  1. Do not leave all the heavy lifting for bacon; in other words, make sure to make the coconut cream parsley and marinate the small potatoes for at least 10 minutes before wrapping them in bacon. This will significantly enhance the flavors; very essential if you wish to get the flavors like me.
  2. Slice the small potatoes to allow the marinade to penetrate.
  3. Parboil or precook the potatoes; if not, you may still have hard potatoes at the end of the cooking.
  4. If you would prefer extra crispy bacon wrapped small potatoes, then bake it for longer, be sure note to burn your food!
