Bacon and potatoes definitely top the list of my most favorite foods. So to me, there’s nothing better than combining them, whether is a bowl of Loaded Baked Potato Soup, a heaping helping of Twice Baked Potato Casserole or something more simple. These Bacon Wrapped Potato Halves are definitely something simple – just potatoes, bacon and some seasonings. That’s all you need to make this amazing side dish.
Plus, it’s as simple in preparation as it is in ingredients. The potato halves come together in just minutes yet make an impressive presentation. The potatoes are infused with bacon flavor and the crispiness of the bacon makes a perfectly contrasting texture to the creamy potatoes.
