Recipe: Sweet & Spicy Bacon Potato Wrappers

Winning Recipe | Special Ingredient Challenge

We love this combination of flavors and textures – sweet, salty, spicy, crunchy, crispy, and royally good. We think these mouth-watering bites would complement a variety of dishes from burgers to grilled salmon. They’d also make a great appetizer at your next party or barbecue.

This winning recipe was submitted by Areli in Massachusetts. In addition to pecans, it features our natural Honey Royale and popular F.R.O.G Jam (made with fig, raspberry, orange, and ginger).


  • 2 potatoes
  • ½ cup soft cream cheese
  • ½ pound of bacon
  • 2 cups kale
  • ½ onion (chopped)
  • ½ cup sliced radish
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • 1 cup Royalty Pecans® (crushed and toasted)
  • 1 tablespoon F.R.O.G Jam (use our Hoppin’ F.R.O.G. Jam for added jalapeno bite)
  • 2 tablespoons Honey Royale
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


Peel potatoes and cut in rectangles 1/2-inch thick. Season potatoes with salt and pepper.

Combine 1/4 cup chopped pecans with soft cream cheese. Spread cream cheese on one side of each potato and make a “potato sandwich” with the pieces. Wrap potato sandwiches with bacon.

Heat a skillet on medium high and place bacon potato wrappers in skillet. Cook until crisp (7-8 minutes). Turn over once.

Cut kale and place it on the side of the same skillet. Add onion. Remove skillet from heat when kale and onions are soft but still have a crunch. Add salt and pepper.

In a separate bowl, mix chipotle peppers, honey, F.R.O.G. Jam, olive oil, lime juice, salt, and pepper to make a dressing.

Serve bacon wrappers with warm kale and radish salad on the side. Garnish with remaining toasted Royalty Pecans® and your homemade sweet and spicy dressing.
