There are a few secrets to this recipe that make it extra special:

  • Sweet and Spicy Glaze: The glaze combines the smokiness of bacon with a touch of heat from NouBess Hot and Spicy Sauce, balanced by the sweetness of brown sugar and the tang of sherry vinegar. It’s a flavor explosion in every bite!
  • Mini Potatoes: Small potatoes cook quickly and ensure the perfect bite-sized ratio of potato to bacon.
  • No Need for Extra Salt: The bacon provides all the salt you need. Trust me, your taste buds will thank you!

Here’s a breakdown of the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe:

  • 24 mini potatoes, cleaned and dried: These are the base of the appetizer. Mini potatoes cook quickly and ensure the perfect bite-sized ratio of potato to bacon. Make sure to wash and dry them thoroughly before wrapping them in bacon.
  • 1/2 pack uncured bacon, regular thickness, about 8 slices: Uncured bacon is a healthier alternative to regular bacon because it contains no nitrates or nitrites. Regular thickness bacon will provide the perfect amount of meatiness to balance the potatoes. You’ll need to cut the bacon slices into thirds for this recipe.
  • ¼ teaspoon Noubess Original Hot and Spicy Sauce: This is what gives the recipe its kick! You can adjust the amount of hot sauce to your desired spice level.
  • 1 tablespoon Sherry Vinegar: This adds a touch of tangy acidity that helps to balance the sweetness of the brown sugar and the smokiness of the bacon.
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar: Brown sugar adds a delicious sweetness to the glaze that caramelizes beautifully in the oven.
  • Appetizer skewers or toothpicks: These are essential for securing the bacon around the potatoes and preventing them from unraveling during baking. You can use either appetizer skewers or toothpicks, depending on your preference.

Making the Perfect Bacon-Wrapped Potatoes

This recipe comes together in just a few easy steps:

  1. Prep the Bacon: Cut uncured bacon slices into thirds and toss them in a mixture of hot sauce, brown sugar, and sherry vinegar.
  2. Wrap the Potatoes: Mini potatoes get a delicious hug from the bacon strips. Secure each potato with a toothpick for easy handling.
  3. Bake to Perfection: Let the oven do the work! The potatoes roast for about 45 minutes, or until tender and the bacon is nice and crispy.

  • 24 mini potatoes cleaned and dried
  • 1/2 pack uncured bacon regular thickness, about 8 slices
  • ¼ teaspoon Noubess Original Hot and Spicy Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Sherry Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

  • Cut the bacon strips in 3 pieces (long enough to wrap a mini potato), and place in large bowl. In a small bowl, combine hot sauce, vinegar and sugar. Pour sugar mixture over bacon, mix well, and make sure that all pieces are thoroughly coated.
  • Wrap each mini potato with a strip of bacon, stretching it until the ends overlap. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with either aluminium foil or parchment paper. Secure the bacon with a toothpick (if you don’t, the bacon might slip off or unwrap) and lay each wrapped potato on the prepared baking sheet ends side down. Roast in the preheated to 375 F oven for 45 minutes or until the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork and the bacon is nicely crisped up.
  • Serve the bacon-wrapped potatoes. You can serve with your preferred Noubess Sauces for a zesty and spicy taste.
