Bacon Wrapped Potatoes Appetizer Recipe
Looking for a mouth watering bacon wrapped potatoes appetizer. This recipe also comes with a delicious honey mustard sauce.
2 large potatoes, peeled and washed, and cut into quarters
4 slices bacon
1/4 cup softened butter
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 Tablespoons mustard
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 Tablespoons scallions, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped
A jar of pickled red peppers
toothpicks to hold the toppings in place
(Makes 8 pieces)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Line a baking pan with aluminum foil.Choose a size that will hold the potatoes, so they sit close together.
Put potatoes in a medium saucepan and fill until just covered with water. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
Cut the potatoes into quarters.
Parboil potatoes until just tender when poked with a fork. About 10 minutes. Once cooked, drain and set aside.
While the potatoes are cooking, use a skillet on the stove top to cook the bacon. Don't over cook as you want to be able to wrap the bacon pieces onto the potatoes. Once cooked, remove to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the fat.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine butter, honey, shredded cheese, mustard, black pepper, scallions and parsley. Mix well and set aside.
Working one at a time, wrap each potato chunk with 2 pieces of bacon and 2 pieces of pickled red peppers. Secure with a toothpick on each end.
Set into the prepared cooking dish and drizzle the glaze on.
Place into the preheated oven and cook for 15-20 minutes, until heated through.
Serve nice and hot and drizzle on any glaze that sits in the pan.
