Bacon Wrapped Butterball Potatoes with Honey Mustard Dip

Shopping at the farmers market in the winter means a lot of root vegetables. During one of my recent trips, I was talking to a farmer about different types of potatoes and he recommended I try these baby German butterball potatoes. Their tiny shape make them perfect for a small bite appetizer. Whether you make this for your next holiday party or the upcoming football games, this recipe is sure to be a hit with your crowd!



1. Preheat oven to 425. Line a large sheet pan with foil and place a baking rack on top.
2. Place the potatoes in a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Boil for 4 minutes, then drain and rinse with cool water.



3. Wrap each potato with 1/2 slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place on the baking rack and season lightly with salt and pepper. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp.


4. Meanwhile, combine honey mustard ingredients in a mixing bowl. Transfer to a serving bowl.


5. Place the bacon wrapped potatoes on a serving platter and garnish with parsley. Serve honey mustard on the side for dipping.
