Bacon-Wrapped Potatoes Recipe

I received this recipe years ago from a friend. It's a delicious new twist to a baked potato. I recently served these potatoes to visiting relatives from Norway, and they were a big hit. I love to cook and even wrote my own cookbook several years ago. -LaVerna Mjones, Moorhead, Minnesota
