Boil Potatoes: Place the potato wedges in a large pot of salted water. Bring to a boil and cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until the potatoes are just tender. Be careful not to overcook them.

Step 2: Season the Potatoes

 

Drain and Dry: Drain the boiled potatoes and pat them dry with a kitchen towel.

Season: In a large mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Add the potato wedges and toss until they are evenly coated with the seasoning mixture.

Step 3: Wrap with Bacon

 

Prepare Bacon: Cut the bacon slices in half to make shorter strips that are easier to wrap around the potato wedges.

Wrap Potatoes: Wrap each seasoned potato wedge with a half slice of bacon, securing the bacon with a toothpick if necessary.

Step 4: Bake the Potato Bites

 

Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and the potatoes are golden brown and tender.

Step 5: Prepare the Dipping Sauce

  1. Mix Ingredients: In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, chopped chives, chopped parsley, salt, and pepper. Stir until well mixed.
  2. Chill: Refrigerate the dipping sauce until ready to serve.

Step 6: Serve and Enjoy

  1. Plate and Garnish: Arrange the bacon-wrapped potato bites on a serving platter. Garnish with additional chopped parsley or chives if desired.
  2. Serve with Dipping Sauce: Serve the potato bites hot, accompanied by the prepared dipping sauce.

Tips for Success

  • Parboil Potatoes: Parboiling the potatoes ensures they cook through and remain tender inside while the bacon crisps up in the oven.
  • Use Thick-Cut Bacon: Thick-cut bacon works best for this recipe as it holds up well during baking and adds a substantial, savory flavor.
  • Experiment with Seasonings: Feel free to experiment with different seasonings and spices to suit your taste preferences.

These Bacon-Wrapped Potato Bites are a surefire hit for any gathering. The combination of crispy bacon and seasoned potatoes creates a delicious snack that’s hard to resist. Pair them with a creamy dipping sauce for an extra layer of flavor, and enjoy the smiles they bring to your table.
