This quick and easy hors d'oeuvre is sure to please... after all ... what's not to like? How can you possibly go wrong with bacon and potatoes?
You can find bags of small potatoes in the produce section of the grocery store. I would stay away from the red potatoes.. they tend to be softer and fall apart... instead ... you can find small yellow potatoes.. they will work well.
Don't skip the "pre-cooking" step.... I've seen recipes that wrap the raw potatoes with bacon.. problem is.. even the best toothpicks tend to break when trying to push them into the potato. Just put two tablespoons of water in a microwaveable dish... prick the potatoes with a small fork and place them in the dish.. microwave on high for about 4-5 minutes.. that will make them soft enough to easily push the toothpick in without breaking them.
Use regular bacon .. not thick sliced. Each potato takes about half a slice.
I serve this with a Sour Cream and Chive Horseradish Dip.
Try this easy hors d'oeuvre... it's so easy .. and a great addition to your tray for your guests to enjoy!

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Put two tablespoons of water in a microwaveable dish... prick the potatoes with a small fork and place them in the dish.. microwave on high for about 4-5 minutes.
Wrap the bacon around the potato once (you will need to cut the bacon slice in half) and secure it with a toothpick.
Place on a non-stick baking sheet or pan. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the bacon is cooked but not crisp.
Remove to a serving tray and allow to cool to room temperature or slightly warm.
