Bacon Wrapped Potato-Wedges/ Honey-Scallion Sauce

Megan Todd


Ever get tired of the same ol same ol french fries! Since bacon is all the rage now, it just seems fitting to share this recipe. Try this recipe for a new and different twist to your weeknight dinner! My kids LOVE to help me prepare this dish! And the Honey-Scallion sauce is a nice added variety of flavor. A friend shared this dish with me over a year ago. Was a hit from the start. Again, as a vegetarian alternative, I prepare without the bacon. Easy enough!

2 large
idaho potatoes, cut lengthwise into 6 wedges each
12 slice
bacon, uncooked
2 c
canola oil
1 Tbsp
1 Tbsp
fresh scallions, chopped
1/2 tsp
fresh parsley, chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

Place oil in large sautee pan on medium heat. (Too high and bacon will burn and potatoes will be undercooked inside).
If making vegetarian version, skip to next step.
Wrap each potato wedge with one slice of bacon, from top of potato to bottom, secure open end with a toothpick.
Place potato wedges in hot oil in saucepan. Oil should come halfway up side of potato. Over medium heat, cook potatoes until lightly browned and tender, turning occasionally, allowing bacon to cook on all sides as well. About 20 minutes. Remove when completely cooked and place on paper towel lined cookie sheet to remove excess oil. Then transfer to serving dish & carefully remove toothpicks.
In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, scallions, honey, parsley, salt, & pepper together. Drizzle. HONEY-BUTTER, SCALLION mixture over potatoes and serve immediately. Either as a side dish or appetizer!

Great for football parties or New Years Orderve!
