Tato n’ Bacon Bites

Over a very hot summer weekend, a few friends and I got together to hang out, enjoy some (gluten free for me) beer, and just enjoy the start to summer.  I found a recipe for these bacon wrapped potato bites and knew they were perfect for a crowd.  I followed this recipe pretty closely, but did make one change in the dip.  The recipe calls for sour cream swirled with hot sauce.  Instead, I made a dip for the Tato n’ Bacon Bites that had sour cream, blue cheese dressing, and buffalo sauce in it.  Talk about a party pleaser!  I will definitely make these again.  Note:  the dip DOES have dairy in it.

Tato n’ Bacon Bites based on a recipe by TheKitchn

Pieces:

  1. one pound small red potatoes, cut into halves or quarters (so they are bite sized)
  2. salt and pepper to season
  3. one tsp. freshly chopped rosemary (finely chopped)
  4. one pound bacon, each piece cut into thirds
  5. toothpicks
  6. 3 tbsp. sour cream
  7. one half cup lite blue cheese dressing
  8. one quarter cup buffalo sauce

Process:

  1. Cut the potatoes so that they are bite sized.
  2. In a large saucepan, add the potatoes and enough water to cover them.
  3. Cover the saucepan and bring to a boil.  Boil the potatoes for about 5 minutes, just until barely fork tender.
  4. Drain the potatoes and let cool.
  5. Toss with salt, pepper, and rosemary.
  6. Wrap each potato bite with a one third piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  7. Bake the bites at 400 degrees about 25-30 minutes, until bacon starts to crisp.
  8. While they are baking, mix together the sour cream, blue cheese dressing, and buffalo sauce.
  9. Serve hot, and dip in that buffalo goodness!

Buffalo Chicken Bites

On a roll this week with chicken tenders, I also made Buffalo Chicken Tenders.  Frank’s Red Hot Sauce is always a fan favorite, and the red hot flavor just makes you beg for more.  These Buffalo Chicken Bites aren’t fried, but are definitely smothered in sauce and very easy to make.  And dairy and gluten free!

Buffalo Chicken Bites

Pieces:

  1. one pound chicken tenders
  2. cooking spray
  3. one and one half cup Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce
  4. 2 tbsp. vegan butter
  5. one quarter cup soy flour
  6. salt and pepper to taste

Process:

  1. In a bowl, combine the hot sauce, butter, and soy flour.
  2. Microwave the sauce for 15 seconds to melt the butter.  Stir to combine.
  3. Reserve one quarter cup of the sauce for serving.
  4. Spray a large saute pan with cooking spray and put it over medium heat.
  5. Dip each chicken tender into the sauce and put on the pan.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. Flip the chicken tenders and pour sauce over them every 3-4 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
  7. Serve hot, smothered with the reserved sauce.
