Mini Strawberry Hand Pies

Strawberry Hand Pies 2


These strawberry hand pies are so good that you just have to try them!  I seriously had a hard time not eating them all by myself.  They are small, but you could easily make them almost any size.  I used a 4 inch cookie cutter and got seven out of a single pie crust.  I kind of wish I had made more.  They are made using the strawberry butter I posted yesterday.  You can use your favorite pie crust or even store bought.  This is my favorite.  Hope you enjoy!

Potato Bacon Bites for Man Food Mondays

Bacon Wrapped Potato Bites Happy Monday folks. I have a very tasty appetizer for you this morning, Potato Bacon Bites for Man Food Mondays.  I have wanted to do this for a few months now, I can tell you that this is one tasty dish for watching the weekends football games. I mean what could be better than little slices of baked potato wrapped in bacon and coated in a warm creamy cheese dip?

Bacon Wrapped Potato Bites

This  is a fairly quick and easy dish, it takes about an hour to do start to finish and there is very little mess involved. I used the smaller sized round/fingerling potatoes about 1 inch in diameter.  You can use larger baking potatoes just cut them into 1 1/2 inch chunks so they cook evenly.  The ones I used were a mix of white, red and purple potatoes, I wanted to be festive :).  Your going to need a cookie sheet covered with either parchment paper or aluminum foil and a few wooden tooth picks to hold the bacon on the potatoes.

    I made these tonight with much success! I overfilled mine some so a few of them oozed as they baked in the oven, but they were still delicious! Thanks for the recipe.
