This Little Piggy Met a Tater

Updated: Jun 4, 2020

Lord Honey, I ain't ever met a tater or a piece of pork I didn't love. I'm bringin' y'all the best of both worlds with a little smoky flare--just try my "Little Piggy Spuds" and y'all will be goin' to the market to buy some pork & taters.

Little Piggy Spuds

Jason Smith, FNS

Serves 8-10


2 pounds frozen tater wedges

1 pound sliced bacon

Spice Rub:

3-TBSP smoked or regular paprika

1-TBSP chili powder

1-tsp garlic powder

1-tsp onion powder

2-tsp ground cumin

1-tsp black pepper

½-tsp salt

Dipping Sauce:

1-cup sour cream

½-cup green onions, minced

1-tsp taco sauce


· Preheat oven to 375°, Line a baking sheet with foil, spray with cooking spray.

· In a small bowl place the spice rub ingredients and stir to combine.

· Place the potato wedges in a large bowl and sprinkle with ½ of the rub; mix and toss lightly to coat.

· Cut bacon in half from end to end, making long strips.

· Use one strip of bacon and wrap each tater wedge, using a spiral fashion.

· Lay in single layer on baking sheet, sprinkle each wedge with more spice mix.

· Place in oven and bake for 20 mins, remove and turn over and bake for another 15 mins, or until bacon is crispy and tater is tender.

· While the wedges are baking mix the sauce.

· Place the sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisk until combined.

· Put the sauce in a small bowl and place on serving platter.

· Remove the wedges and place on platter around the dippin’ sauce.

Tip: This can be made with sweet tater wedges as well.
