  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.
  2. Make 4 cuts into each potato without going all of the way through so that each potato has been cut into 5 thick slices. Place potatoes onto squares of aluminum foil. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of salt inside each potato, then wrap with 3 slices of bacon and secure with toothpicks if needed. Brush the potatoes with olive oil, then sprinkle with brown sugar and black pepper. Wrap the potatoes loosely in the aluminum foil.
  3. Grill potatoes until the bacon has crisped, and the potato is soft in the center, about 45 minutes depending on grill temperature.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

i made these for my camping trip and due to the size of the potato, it took about an hour and a half to cook them. I left them in the coals of our campfire. The bacon was delicious, but our br...

I am not a fan of potatoes but this recipe intrigued me and fit with my "bacon BB" theme. Adding olive oil AFTER wrapping it in bacon – over kill on the grease factor I think - + what do you bru...

Really great spin on the regular baked potatoe. Very tasty & sweet. The bacon adds just the right amount of salty to it. Yum!

I did not care for this recipe.

I made these yesterday and loved them! I used small to medium potatoes and I microwaved them until done, then cooked them on the grill as directed. YUMMO!
