I like to use thick cut bacon. It just holds up better.

If you slice and then boil the potatoes, they cook much faster.

The potatoes are delicate, so be careful when you wrap them. I had several breaks.

They were so delicate, I ultimately abandoned the wrapping and turned it into a skillet dish.

    Looks like a recipe I can make at home. I have to stay away from onions when I cook for the church. Someone doesn’t like any kind of onion.
