Provencal Bacon Wrapped Potatoes:

6  large white potatoes – cut into 1 inch wedges

1   1/2 t. herbs de provence

1 T. garlic infused olive oil

1/2 t. salt

1 t. freshly cracked black pepper

1/2 pound center cut bacon sliced, cut in half


Preheat oven to 425. Combine potato wedges, herbs de provence, olive oil, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. You can make the garlic infused olive oil by heating regular olive oil with 1 clove of minced garlic and let it sit. Cut bacon slices in half and wrap each potato wedge with bacon and place on a foil lined cookie sheet. Roast in the middle of the oven for about 25 minutes. You may have to pour off some of the bacon fat half way through roasting. Remove from oven and drain on paper towels.  Serve while warm. The potatoes will be very tender and flavorful!
