Ingredients

  • 8 medium sized potatoes suitable for salads or boiling (firm fleshed)
  • 8 slices of smoked streaky bacon (use prosciutto as replacement)
  • 16 sprigs of thyme or rosemary
  • Toothpicks

Method

  1. Cut the potatoes lengthwise in halves, cut the bacon into 16 long strips.
  2. Place a sprig of herb onto the cut side of each potato and wrap a slice of bacon around before fixing it with a toothpick.
  3. Place onto the flat plate of your medium hot BBQ and close the hood (or cook on indirect heat). Otherwise place them into a baking tray that you tightly wrap with tinfoil and cook it over direct heat (in case your BBQ is overloaded just bake them uncovered in your oven at 190 degrees)
  4. Cook for 30 - 40 minutes until the potatoes are golden brown and soft through their centre.

Serve with sour cream or greek yoghurt and fresh green salad
