What a fun potato recipe!!! So easy to make, especially if you already have cooked bacon, which I had leftovers from breakfast!! I made this using 2 large red skinned potatoes for the two of us. This would be awesome as finger appetizers using the tiny potatoes. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Made for ZWT 8.
