Let's make Bacon Wrapped Potatoes!

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. While it's heating, scrub, rinse, and dry the potatoes. Wrap each potato with 1-2 slices of bacon, overlapping the slices to account for shrinkage.

Step 2

Secure the bacon in place with as many toothpicks as it takes, then place the wrapped potatoes on a wire rack on top of a baking sheet.

Step 3

Bake the wrapped potatoes for 55-60 minutes, until the potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork and the bacon is crispy. Remove, let cool for 10 minutes, then remove the toothpicks.

Step 4

Cut a slit at the top of each potato, then push on the ends to open them for stuffing!

Step 5

Fill each potato with butter, cheese, and sliced onions, plus any other chosen toppings. Serve, and enjoy!
