To serve these bacon-wrapped potatoes as an appetizer, simply leave in the toothpicks they were secured and baked with. Remove them to serve as a side dish.
8 bacon slices, cut in half crosswise
16 small potatoes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wrap each bacon piece around a potato and secure with a toothpick. Place in a baking dish and bake until bacon is crisp and potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife, 40 to 50 minutes.
