Bacon-wrapped potato wedges with a sour cream dipping sauce

You know what I love more than a potato wedge? A potato wedge wrapped in bacon and dipped in sour cream. 

These awesome bites are crispy on the outside (um, because they are basically roasted with bacon grease) and soft on the inside. 

I am a huge fan of great appetizer recipes. I go to a lot of parties and host even more. Having a solid list of appetizer recipes is a must. 

I wanted to try something new to bring to Libby and Biffer's Super Bowl party yesterday so I checked out my appetizers Pinterest board and the words bacon and potatoes caught my eye.  I combined a couple recipes together and these little beauties came to be.  Bring them to your next party.  Your friends will thank me.  

Bacon-wrapped potato wedges with a sour cream dipping sauce (recipe inspired by My Recipes and The Kitchn)

Ingredients 

5-10 small to medium sized red potatoes, cut into wedges 
1 package of center cut bacon, cut in half
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons fresh chives, minced
3-4 dashes of Tabasco sauce 
Salt and pepper
Toothpicks 

Preparation
  
  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Sprinkle potato wedges with salt and pepper. Wrap each with 1/2 a bacon slice and secure with a toothpick. Arrange potato wedges in a single layer on a lightly greased baking sheet (I filled up 2 baking sheets). 
  2. Bake at 425° for 35-40 minutes or until bacon is crisp and browned.
Combine sour cream, Tabasco sauce and chives and mix well.  Serve alongside potato wedges.
