These bacon-wrapped potato bites are the perfect party appetiser! Sweet and fluffy baby potatoes wrapped with cheddar cheese and thin slices of bacon. Crunchy outside and creamy inside.

Perfect for every occasion, from a birthday party to a barbecue or Christmas dinner, these bacon-wrapped potatoes will be everyone’s favourite! I recently prepared them for a dinner and as soon as I put the tray on the table my guests devoured them!

These little crunchy bites are great with a mustard dipping sauce, a tartare sauce or even with a light guacamole.
