Tiny potatoes, wrapped in bacon, dipped in lemon aioli. Makes for the perfect game-day or holiday appetizer, or even an easy and crowd-pleasing side dish for Easter!
Eric just turned on a movie. Before I could even ask what he was watching, he’s like, “Don’t judge me.” And then I hear Pee wee Herman.
Oh I’m JUDGING, Eric. There are guilty pleasures, and then there are guilty pleasures. I once went through a phase where I watched Revenge in the middle of the night while up nursing babies, loooong after they were done eating. My sister-in-law went a year faithfully reading celebrity updates on PopSugar. A friend of mine told me that there have been low points in her life when all she needed was a can of sweetened condensed milk and a spoon. I mean, I get it. But Pee wee Herman?
What about you? Got any guilty pleasures? Another of mine is reading YA books but ONLY for the romance. I mean we are talking Percy Jackson, Harry Potter kind of romance, tame to a T. I love romance, but only when it’s fun and innocent and not just sex sex sex. But still, it’s kind of embarrassing how much I know about Percy and Annabeth, two 16 year old demigods. And I will skim all seven HP books to read all the conversations between Harry and Ginny. Yeeeeah.
BACON however, is not a guilty pleasure. There is just no guilt going on over here. I particularly love when things are wrapped in bacon. It’s just so comforting, makes me wish I had my own bacon blankie. Okay that’s weird. ANYWAY, these Bacon-Wrapped Potatoes basically taste like bacon-smothered french fries, except there is no frying involved, or even potato chopping. Just wrap, skewer with a toothpick, and bake. Then dunk it in some easy and bright lemon aioli that you literally whipped up in 5 minutes, and your life just got a thousand bacon points better.
