This is one of the recipes from my Dinner Party for 12 for Under $50 menu. These potatoes literally taste like heaven. There is no other way to describe them. Since the first time I tried them in December, I have made them at least once a week! They are truly that good and potatoes are one of the most inexpensive foods out there, so it’s great for my wallet too.
Bacon sliced in half (Half piece per potato)
Ingredients for Dill Sauce:
3/4 Cup Mayonnaise
1/4 Cup Buttermilk (I sub milk with lemon juice in it)
2 Teaspoons Dried Dill
1 Teaspoon Caraway Seeds
Salt + Pepper
Directions for Dill Sauce:
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.
Directions for Potatoes:
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Using a sharp knife, cut slits in potatoes so they kind of resemble an armadillo. Stop about 1/4 inch into the potato so it stays in one piece.
Brush a little bit of melted butter on top of potatoes and place them in a greased baking dish.
Sprinkle some salt on top of the potatoes.
Wrap each potato with half a piece of bacon, with the two ends meeting underneath the potato. Place back in dish.
Bake potatoes for an hour and 30 minutes, or until as golden brown as you want them to be.
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!
