Bacon-Wrapped Potatoes with Dill Sauce
- Red Potatoes
- Bacon Sliced in Half
- 3/4 Cup Mayo
- 1/4 Cup Buttermilk
- 2 Teaspoons Dried Dill
- 1 Teaspoon Caraway Seeds
- Salt & Pepper
Whisk together the mayonnaise, buttermilk, dill, caraway seeds, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Let chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors really come together.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Halve or quarter bigger potatoes. You can leave the small ones whole.
Boil 1 quart of water with salt. Add potatoes and turn heat to low, let simmer for 12 minutes. Drain.
Put potatoes on a greased baking sheet, sprinkle some salt on top of them.
Wrap each potato with half a piece of bacon, with the two ends meeting underneath the potato.
Bake potatoes for about 25 minutes, until bacon is crispy!
I am thinking of serving these babies at Thanksgiving this year. I think it would complement the turkey dinner quite nicely!
Serve potatoes with dill sauce and ENJOY! Do me a favor and make these tonight you guys. They are truly incredible. I can’t say enough good things about them!
