There are times when I get tired of the same old sides for meals. It seems the routine is meat, potatoes, and a veggie.
The meat is generally a steak or chicken. Potatoes are usually mashed or scalloped and the vegetables are generally corn or green beans as they are the kids’ favorites.
It is almost a habit now and it is getting BORING!
If you are looking to break this habit and try something new then these Bacon Wrapped Potato Bites are just what you need!
