I just pulled this appetizer 
out of the oven for our weekly 
get-together at my father in laws home
 where the family gathers most 
every Friday after work ~ 
The rosemary adds the perfect twist...

Found my photograph featured on 
Yummly on 6-25-12,
but she revised the recipe quite a bit ;(

***Bacon-Wrapped Fingerling Potatoes:

1 lb. organic fingerling potatoes (or red, or Yukon potatoes cut into 1” cubes)
½ teaspoon organic dried rosemary
½ teaspoon organic garlic powder
½ teaspoon organic onion powder
1 tablespoon organic olive oil
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
½ lb. quality bacon
Organic Fingerling

***Sriracha Dipping Sauce
1 cup sour cream
¼ teaspoon organic garlic powder
¼ teaspoon organic onion powder
½ teaspoon sriracha (Asian hot sauce), or more if you like it spicier
1 teaspoon organic fresh lime zest
1 tablespoon organic chopped fresh parsley
sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil, and top it with a sprayed baking rack on top, and set aside. 

Whisk the Spicy Creamy Dipping Sauce ingredients in a small bowl, and set aside for flavors to meld.

Place potatoes in a medium saucepan, cover with cold water, and bring to a boil. Season the water with sea salt. Once the water begins to boil, par-cook potatoes for about 5 minutes.  Drain the potatoes, and place them in a large Ziploc bag. Add the rosemary, olive oil, and freshly ground pepper, and toss until the potatoes are evenly coated.

Skewers hot out of the oven
Cut the strips of bacon in half lengthwise, and then in half crosswise.  Wrap each piece of potato in a strip of the cut bacon, securing them on metal skewers (or toothpicks/wooden skewers that have been soaked for 30 minutes), leaving a bit of space in between pieces.

Place skewered potatoes on the prepared baking sheet/rack, and bake for 30 minutes, turning half way, until the bacon is cooked through and crisp. Place the potato bites on a serving platter, along with the dipping sauce. – Enjoy!


Tip:  I made these ahead and removed them from the skewers, and will reheat in the microwave prior to serving, which makes for easier transporting.

I was experimenting with a recipe that I already use quite often for roasting potatoes, and decided to wrap these potatoes in bacon...they're spectacular! They're going to be great with an Alaskan Amber Beer tonight ;)
