Tots in a Blanket: Delish Bacon Wrapped Potatoes Recipe


"The only thing better than bacon is bacon wrapped in bacon."

Many of you have seen my recent Dark Chocolate Covered Marshmallows recipe post, which were a huge hit when served at our holiday party last weekend. I wanted to have an equally adorable and delicious savory appetizer at the party as well. "What does everyone love?" I thought. The obvious answer was bacon. While I didn't serve bacon wrapped in bacon, I found the next best thing: Bacon Wrapped Potatoes. I've nicknamed them Tots in a Blanket for obvious reasons. Hope you like em!

Bacon Wrapped Potatoes Recipe 




I found the best bacon recipe from none other than Martha Stewart herself. It's quick, budget-friendly, and easy enough to get the kids involved (just watch out for those toothpicks)! 

All you need is:

  • 1 bag small potatoes 
  • 1 package bacon
  • 1 container of toothpicks 

Depending on the number of people you're planning on feeding, you may want to get more potatoes and more bacon. I got a couple packages of both. 


Simple Recipe Instructions


Pre-Baked Bacon Bites

Step-By-Step:

  1. Preheat Oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Cut bacon slices in half crosswise
  3. Cut potatoes into halves or quarters, as needed
  4. Wrap each bacon piece around a potato piece
  5. Secure with a toothpick
  6. Place on baking sheet and bake until bacon is crisp and potatoes are tender against a knife (40-50 minutes)
  7. Enjoy!


 Finished Product

I placed these on a napkin atop a serving dish, since bacon can get a bit greasy. Just before the guests arrived, I switched out the napkin for a new one to keep them looking fresh and appetizing.

These Tots in a Blanket were so fun to prepare and a huge hit at the party, not to mention they made the whole house smell absolutely delicious. They're the perfect savory appetizer for a hearty crowd, and go great with holiday sweets as well. Hope you enjoy them & Happy Holidays!
