Ingredients

2 large Idaho potatoes

Canola oil, for frying (about 2 cups)

8 slices applewood smoked bacon, cut in 1/2 vertically

16 toothpicks

1/4 cup softened butter

1/4 cup honey

1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper

2 tablespoons chopped scallions

1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions

  1. 1. Cut each potato into 8 wedges and parboil until fork tender.
  2. 2. In a preheated large saute pan, heat oil on medium-high heat. Wrap each potato wedge with 1 strip of bacon and secure with 1 toothpick on each end. Pan-fry in oil until bacon and potato are golden brown, approximately 8 to 10 minutes, turning frequently with tongs to brown all sides evenly. Remove and drain on paper towels.
  3. 3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix butter, honey, black pepper, scallions and parsley. Stir with a spoon until fully mixed.
  4. 4. Toss potatoes in the glaze. Remove toothpicks and serve.
