Cheesy Bacon Potato Bite-Sized Snacks is an easy recipe that makes a tasty bite sized snack perfect for popping while watching the big game!


  • 1 package Puff Pastry (2 sheets)
  • 6 Fingerling Idaho® potatoes
  • Kosher salt
  • Homemade Bacon Jam Recipe
  • 4 ounces Smoked Gruyere cheese, grated
  • fresh Thyme leaves


  1. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Remove puff pastry from the freezer and allow to thaw while boiling the potatoes.
  2. Place potatoes in a saucepan with a 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt and add just enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring water to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to mid-high and simmer until potatoes are almost tender. About 5 minutes. Drain and allow potatoes to cool.
  3. Cut both sheets of puff pastry into 4 even strips horizontally and vertically. This will yield 16 squares of puff pastry per sheet for a total of 32 squares.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°F. Score the edges of each square (about an 1/8 of an inch from the edge) and use a fork to prick the insides of each square where the filling goes. Place on parchment lined pastry sheet and freeze for about 10 minutes.
  5. While the pastry is in the freezer, cut the potatoes into thin rounds about 1/8″ thick.
  6. Once the pastry squares are chilled, remove them from the freezer and assemble the appetizer by placing about 1 teaspoon of Bacon Jam inside each square. Top with 1-2 potato rounds and about a teaspoon of Gruyere cheese. Bake in the preheated oven for 13-15 minutes until the pastry is golden and the cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh thyme leaves. Serve and enjoy!
