5 strips of Thick Cut Bacon; cut in half to make 10 half-strips
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Salted Water for boiling

Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with 1-2 inches of salted water
Cover and bring to a boil. Preheat oven to 350°. Cook potatoes until almost fork-tender.

Carefully transfer potatoes to a strainer and cool until you can handle them. Allow potatoes to cool a few minutes, or until safe to touch

Wrap bacon around each potato and secure with a sandwich pick. Place wrapped potatoes on a baking sheet, cut side down

Smoosh the potatoes down a little bit to allow the bacon flavor to penetrate the entire potato

Bake for 20 minutes, or until bacon is crispy and potatoes are lightly browned. Sprinkle with Cheese while still warm – adapted from
