1 Hr 15 Min

Ingredients

**russet potatoes
**bacon
**jalapeno
**olive oil
**your favorite potato seasoning

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Scrub potato skins, then cut in half, then into thirds. If you want to use jalapeno slices, cut jalapeno in half, take out seeds and cut into about 6 slices per half.
2
Place potatoes in bowl and drizzle with olive oil and generously season with your favorite potato seasoning, toss to coat well.
3
You will need 1/2 slice of bacon for each, or be indulgent and use 1 slice. Place a slice of jalapeno on the side of potato and wrap with bacon.
4
You could probably secure them with toothpicks, but if you have a grilling basket that has a top and bottom, it is much easier I think. Spray bottom and top of basket, place them in bottom of basket leaving a little room in between. Secure top of basket tightly against potatoes.
5
Heat one side of grill to med heat and place basket on other side with NO heat, and cook indirectly for 1- 1 1/2 hrs. The bacon browns so nicely and does not burn. Use a toothpick to check for doneness after 1 hr. Toothpick will insert easily if done.
