Expert Tips

Partially cooking these potatoes in the microwave shortens the grilling time.

Purchase the precooked bacon slices in the grocery store meat department. Or try cooked bacon pieces packaged in jars or resealable plastic bags; look for them near the salad dressings.

Serve this dish with barbecued chicken or grilled chicken.
