A fun take on potato gems which the children are sure to love, great party food or as a side dish with dinner.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 pack Potato gems
  • 6 rashers Bacon cut lengthways
  • 2 tablespoons Brown sugar
  • 1 spray Cooking spray oil


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Wrap bacon around gem using lots of the fatty bit & lay against each other so bacon doesn't fall apart then sprinkle brown sugar on them. Spray the lightest bit of oil on them also.
  3. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes


Use brown sugar however, white can be replaced. Use toothpicks if you want to keep together. No need to line tray with foil or cooking spray as foil makes the gems stick & the oil too greasy.

  • A yummy recipe!


  • Lovely finger food for the next party.


  • Gosh these look yuumy! I think maple syrup would also work well.

    • Bacon is so awesome! And potato gems… yum!


  • Your pic reminded of a treat my Gran used to make where bacon was wrapped around prunes and light fried in a pan. The prunes released their natural sugars and caramelised the bacon. They were soooooo yum! BUT there’s only so many prunes you can eat before you’re in trouble, lol.


  • I have always wanted to try the sweetened style of bacon seen in places like America and Canada. Looks delicious


  • drool! I love stuffing mine with grated cheese


  • woah this recipe looks awesome….kids would def eat these!


  • these are definately only for me!


  • Bacon wrapped anything is yum and satisfy anyone with a sweet tooth.


  • These look so naughty but so nice! I love potato gems by themselves, but these would be a real treat for the kids. Awesome at parties, too. Thanks for sharing!


  • ooohhh the ids are going to love these


  • these look fantastic


  • Oh wow, I wish I read this last night (we had potato gems hehehe). have you tried maple syrup instead of sugar….its a winner with my kids. Gotta love bacon!!
