Recipe Tip(s):

  • Precooking the bacon assures that the bacon will be cooked thoroughly.
  • Precooking the potatoes makes it easier to skewer and assures that the potatoes will be cooked through.
  • Omit the additional vegetables and skewer red, white and blue potatoes with bacon for a delicious side to your tailgate!
