Hey y’all! GOODe Ole Boy here!
Do you love bacon? Do you love taters? In my humble opinion I believe you should be saying “YES!” to both. If not, please go read a salad post from another site. (Totally kidding, folks. Stay with me and I’ll make you a believer too)
These bacon wrapped taters from Crock Pot Recipe Collection are total redneck sophistication! It only takes a few minutes to prep them. Then after a little time soakin’ in a chicken broth bath, you’ll be all kinds of giddy when you take a bite…or two…or three. Check out our video of this recipe.
Crock Pot Bacon Taters Notes
Start off by making sure your taters are clean. Then, in a large bowl, toss your taters in your oil, thyme, pepper and paprika until thoroughly coated. Next, wrap each lil’ spud in one strip of bacon, tightly, making sure the ends of the bacon touch. In a large skillet (or your slow cooker if it has a “saute” setting) brown your bacon wrapped taters until the bacon is all browned up. Toss your taters in your slow cooker and add your chicken broth and that’s it! Now cover and set your cooker to HIGH for three hours.
The chicken broth will soak into your taters, keeping them from drying them out. They’ll come out moist and flavorful! These would be great for a side dish, simple meal, or a real fancy hors d’oeuvre! (That’s all the French I know…)
